Organic Fruit Baskets

Organic Fruit Baskets

Organic fruit baskets are a wonderful gift idea for any occasion - or no occasion at all! Organic fruit baskets are available in a wide array of style and sizes, and can usually be customized to fit nearly any preferences. Not necessarily limited to only organic fruit, these baskets often play host to a variety of organic products. When you care enough to send a special friend, relative, or client the freshest and healthiest produce, only organic fruit baskets will do.

In order to qualify as certified organic fruit, the produce must be grown without any artificial fertilizers or pesticides. Many people feel that these requirements result in fruits that are far more nutritious and better tasting. Organic fruit baskets use only certified organic fruits, often along with other organic products, to provide healthy and delicious treats. Some organic fruit baskets also include organic nuts and cheeses. In order to be certified as organic, cheese must be produced from milk made by cows that are raised without the use of growth hormones or antibiotics. Some truly gourmet organic fruit baskets can include a whole variety of delicious organic treats, from fresh and dried fruits (sometimes including some fruits dipped in organic chocolate) to organic crackers and even organic wine.

Some popular fruits included in organic fruit baskets include apples, pears, oranges, and grapefruit. Depending on the time of year and seasonal availability, organic fruit baskets may also include peaches, cherries, strawberries, or other fruits. Because they are grown without artificial interference, many seasonally grown organic fruits are not available year-round. Companies that provide organic fruit baskets should be able to readily tell you what types of produce are available to be included in a basket at any given time of year. Some companies that produce organic fruit baskets also offer fruit-of-the-month club or other similar shipments. These allow you to send a year-round variety of organic fruit baskets on a regular monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual basis.

In keeping with the theme of environmentally sound practices, many organic fruit baskets are packaged in a reusable basket or crate that is made from natural, often recycled, products. Since most organic growers are small independent farms, you can also feel good about the fact that purchasing organic fruit baskets helps keep up the demand for this fresh, high-quality produce. Perhaps best of all, recipients of organic fruit baskets know they are getting the very best that nature has to offer.
