    • Carmen,
      We do not ship our fruits at all. They were all self-collected by customers directly from our farm. Recently, due to unfavorable whether conditions, the production of the fruits has dropped drastically. However we expect the conditions to improve soon.

      Thank you for your inquiry but we couldn’t meet your request at this time.
