We were very well pleased with our order. everything arrived safely and intact. thank you for your quality products. we will definitely order again. again thank you.
This was a gift which i had delivered. upon checking with my friend, she was very pleased and would enjoy receiving them again.
I was happy with the fruit i received for the holidays and i plan on ordering some valencia oranges soon.
I had a good experience with my purchase from hale groves. i purchase two citrus boxes that were sent as gifts to individuals in michigan and texas. both boxes arrived during the estimated delivery time period that hale groves provided me with during the purchasing process. this was greatly appreciated because some companies are not fore-coming or truthful about when deliveries will occur. both of the recipients were surprised and grateful for the gifts. the only downside to the experience was that one of my recipients received a box that contained some rotten fruit. overall, i would use hale groves' services again.
Service was friendly and helpful. produce arrived as scheduled and in good condition.
The oranges are good and are delivered in a timely manner. i have had some trouble with billing. there isn't a bill in the boxes, and sometimes i receive a bill. sometimes i do not. when i called about a missing bill, i was told it had been paid. i assume there was a credit card number on file. however, last year i was informed your company wouldn't ship to me because i hadn't paid. i had paid every bill i received. as you can see, this has been confusing and a little unsettling, but i assume if i owe anything, i'll get a bill. if i don't get a shipment, i'll call. thank you. linda
Everybody was very happy with their fruit and i was happy it arrived in a timely manner.. good job!
Received the red grapefruit which are nice and juicy. thank you .
The navel oranges were juicy and flavorful will do more business with you i had order from another company in florida a little cheaper but not tasty or juicy order from hales
For the past few years we've been using them, hale groves has proven a reliable source of quality citrus for holiday gifts (including for ourselves!). every recipient has been very pleased. (for ourselves we especially love their sol zest mandarin jewels and only wish they could be made available for a longer growing season!) the website is easy to use, especially the feature of retaining the prior order history/gift recipient list. my only complaint is that purchases are charged to one's credit card at time of order, rather than at time of shipment. i realize this is standard in the industry but don't like paying for something that hasn't yet been furnished. i feel the citrus industry could take a lesson from the successful catalog clothiers for a more customer-friendly payment policy in that regard.

Excellent quality, well packaged, arrived when expected. hale is the only company i will deal with for this type of product.
I heard from my brother that the navel oranges were delicious but small and he was thankful for them
Too many emails sent around holidays.
Love the fresh taste of ruby red grapefruit in salads and desserts!! will definitely order again
I order navel oranges every year for my parents in vermont. they are always sweet and juicy. they so look forward to this delivery every year. thanks 'deb
Great product and excellent service. 5 stars
My 85 year old aunt loves oranges. i buy your oranges frequently for her and she is thrilled each time the box arrives. but most especially when the honeybells show up at her apartment. she tells me she has to eat them leaning over the sink!
Gifts my children liked them
Placing the order was quite convenient. there were many attractive gifts displays from which to choose any gifts that i have given to friends from hale, they have always enjoyed the fruit very much thanks you
I have been pleased with the produce and timeliness of the orders which i have placed. however, i was disappointed in your honeybells. i guess my expectations were greater in light of the comments in your brochure. i will not be ordering those again.
Always delicious. always on time.
I have been very satisfied with the fruit when i send send it to family at christmas time they really do enjoy it the oranges were very sweet & juicy this year this year
Fruit was delicious, always good. my friend enjoyed it very much
Very rarely does an orange in a group arrive overripe. i am very satisfied with the fruits i receive. grapefruits, mangoes, pears and peaches i have received have always arrived in prime condition and very tasty
Hale groves came through quickly and efficiently when my order was mishandled by shipping company. prompt replacement and handled with great courtesy and understanding. have used hale for several year and appreciate quality of product.
Family tradition to share grapefruit. come december, we watch for those cases to arrive. wouldn't be christmas without a hale grove delivery!
Have ordered from you for 5 to 6 years. have had very good results with every order. arrived when said they would- except for storms one year. fruit has always been in great shape..will keep ordering from you..

The grapefruit arrives so fresh and juicey .it tastes delicious. grandma's fruitcake is to die for. every bite is full of goodies.
On time and delicious as always. thanks!
We have always been pleased with the quality of the fruit and so have all our relatives in the north. we ship early to avoid all the cold and snow and early presents are always welcome!!!
I have ordered from hale groves for years! love your product! if there is a problem, you go the distance to make it right! customer service is awesome, thanks.
Year after year your company serves this dedicated customer well !!
According to the recipients, the fruit arrived on time, and mostly in shape. there were a couple pieces of spoiled fruit, but they didn't want to contact hale about it.
I send fruit to my friends and family all over the country each year for christmas. i like having the confidence that they are getting top quality fruit in a timely manner.
All products i have ordered from hale groves have been of excellent quality!!
Brilliant tasty fruit. excellent customer service. don't hesitate buying from hale they stand behind their products.
I have been very satisfied with your products that i have ordered as christmas gifts for relatives for many years.
I have been sending a package of yours for several years now to a daughter in chicago - and she raves about them. okay, one year was just normal quality, but all the rest have been raves. thankks
Fast shipping great fresh fruit.allways a great last min. gift idea
Hale in my opinion, the best orchard to deal with. on time orders received produce excellent and if a problem they remedy.
The people we sent the oranges to liked them
I am always very happy with my purchase and the people that i send this to actually look forward to the box from hale groves. the oranges are beautiful, sweet and so good tasting. my in-law's love this and so do my friends.

Excellent grapefruits. very juicy. 2 of the fruits at the bottom of the carton were spoiled.
The oranges were juicy, delicious and best of all no seeds!!
The fruit is always very fresh and in perfect condition. packaged well, so there is no transport damage. there is nothing sweeter on a cold winter morning than to slice open a fresh grapefruit and bask in the lovely citrus aroma surrounding you! it brings sunshine to your soul.
Your fruit is excellent
Super expensive and continues to increase. have been a customer for 30 years. tempted st this point to learn to make my own fruitcake.
Gift recipients have been very pleased each christmas. i order when you offergood savings thanks.
Fruit is usually of excellent quality and if it isn`t you make it right. however the fruit is too expensive. i can`t justify spending $4.00 each for navel oranges.
A few pieces of fruit have arrived to gift recipients that were defective, but hale's replaced the shipment
Fruit is sweet and juicy. short shipping times. variety of gifts and baked goods. would like to see more discounts and free shipping.
Our ruby red grapefruit shipment arrived and the grapefruit that we've had to date have been juicy, sweet and just perfect. we will order again.
Top quality products and always a pleasure to do business with.
Love hale groves (and so do my friends!)
Freshness, quality and size are what's important to me. you do a great job.
The honeybell's that i've ordered for several years and had delivered to family members out of state (where they can't purchase them locally) have been great surprises for everybody. my family recently told me this latest batch of honeybell's was absolutely loaded with more juice than any before. every bite exploded with sweet juices. they loved it. they bragged to much i had to buy some for myself. and, i found out, they were right. we love hale groves.
The fruit is excellent, specially the oranges. shipping is great...specially when you offer specials. the only back drop is apples/pears special and the quality of apple/pears, my entire shipment of fruit was bad and very soft, plus no real good flavor. i would not recommend apples/pears combo.
The very best tasting fruit. great assortment and imaginative packaging. makes an excellent gift!
As always the delivery was on time and the fruit was very fresh. it was firm and not damaged from shipping.
Citrus sweet and juicy but in each box there has been 2-3 spoiled ones.
First order replaced. highly satisfied with service.
Everyone has always been very pleased with the gifts i have sent through hale groves. the quality has been great and they have been received on time. i will continue using hale groves for gifts to my non-florida relatives.
Love your fruit. very upsetting during the holidays in december 2016. i ordered my christmas gifts around thanksgiving as usual only to get a new sale email like every 2-4 days between thanksgiving and christmas. every sale was better than the previous. i emailed hale and asked that they stop sending me these notifications as each aggravated me over and over. the emails never stopped. i could have saved money by waiting until the last minute to order. of course i want the best prices so how do i tell if this is the best price or the best price is yet to come. love the fruit and it's always delivered on time. i just feel cheated i paid more than i should have. i've been a hale's customer for probably around 15 years. how can i get the best price when i order?????
This years fruit wasn't as good as previous years. one of my gifts sent said the same . j
Excellent customer service! all my questions were answered and the order was done quickly and efficiently.
Five stars for hale groves ! great gifts, good product, and only a few clicks and done.
I always give these honeybell oranges to family and friends for christmas - everyone is very happy with them and i'm glad to give a healthy gift. only downside (not a reflection on the fruit itself) is that the box looked like it was slightly crushed on on corner and bruised the fruit, which resulted in several oranges molding prematurely. maybe better packaging???
Very professional staff. appreciate the care with which you provide service and products.
Best grapefruit in the country!
The grapefruit were tasty and juicy. most of the skins were not too thick.
Problems were handled in a timely and professional manner. the replacement fruit arrived in a timely manner and was delicious. will be ordering more oranges soon.
Love your january honey bells. folks at christmas time love the fruit received as gifts.
Extremely good customer service and wonderful products! efficient ordering and notice of shipment with tracing number. excellent company!
The fruit is fantastic, the grapefruit are amazing. your stuff is the best.
We've been receiving and buying hale groves citrus for decades. my in-laws used to send them to us when they were living in florida. once they moved back, we buy them for ourselves every thanksgiving--like a gift from them. we enjoy over the holidays and into the new year, as the fruit is always so fresh that it lasts a long time.
Use hale every year to send citrus to family at christmas. always get good feedback that fruit arrives on schedule and in good shape. lots of different gift packages to choose from, it's super convenient when sending to multiple recipients spread all over the us and there's something for every budget! will continue this tradition for many years to come!
Everything has been great.
I love enything i order from you. charlotte jeffrey
We always order monthly shipments and this year we've ordered extra for our kids who have moved out to live on their own. love hale grapefruits! however, there were 2 rotten/damaged grapefruits in the most recent order.
The fruit, shipment and quality has definitely been five star!
We always look forward to our shipment of fruit. they are wonderful!
Your service was first rate. your navels - not your best year. not as juicy, sweet or as large as prior years.
The party i sent the fruit to said they enjoyed it very much.
We had oranges sent to south carolina for the holidays and our family loved them. the oranges were delicious. we will definitely order again and recommend this company for price and promptness on delivery.
We had fruitoranges sent to south carolina for the holidays and our family loved it. the oranges were delicious.
Always fresh and very tasty. it's our treat to ourselves several times a year.

Delivered as promised and at the price promised!!
Ordered hale baskets for christmas. what a treat for all who received them. the packaging was well decorated and fruit terrific. will order again from hale groves.
My oregon family was extremely happy with the fruit.
Literally for more than 26 years i have asked the hale family to ship their bright orange boxes of ruby reds and navels and honey bells to my family across the midwest. every shipment has been excellent - that's a lot of happy !! i thank you all.
Good fruit and good service.
My annual box of navel oranges is my christmas gift to myself.
The fruit is very good and solid for this time of year,thank you so much , we are enjoying them very much.
I was very pleased with the fresh fruit. delicious. zona
The fruit from hale groves is always first class. we give citrus gifts to our northern relatives and they always say the fruit is fresher and sweeter than what they can buy in the local store. delivery has always been on time also.
Our experience with hale groves could not have been any better. we especially appreciated the double amount of fruit special that we were able to take advantage of during the christmas season. it made some of our christmas shopping much easier. the gifts were received at the time that we asked for. the gifts were appreciated and enjoyed by family and friends. the fruit was beautiful and delicious. we did not experience any problem in ordering or delivering of the gifts. thank you, hale groves, for providing a great resource to help us with our yearly christmas giving.
For years, i have been very satisfied with hale groves products. the one and only time i had an issue, customer service responded quickly and solved the problem immediately. i would recommend hale without reservation.
Exceptionally juicy & flavorful citrus. occasionally a slightly moldy piece, but that is the nature of shipping.
Your temple oranges and the tangerines are simply outstanding!!!
Our uncle loved the fruit.
I think that hale groves is a great company for providing top service to customers who are looking for that special gift for people who have everything . after all, we all have to eat. and from my point of view,there has never been a rejection or a return of any of your well packaged gift items.
Some of the most beautiful pieces of fruit and equally tasty!
Always informative various presentations always tempting.
Wonderful service and fruit. they get it right the first time and if there is a mixup with what was ordered with what was sent they make good on it immediately.
Always delivered on time and the very best in quality no matter what i order
Have purchased drom hale groves for several years for myself and for gifts. fruit as well as other products have always been exceprional.
These are the best oranges around. i had one bad in the box and they gave me a credit.
I have been sending more than 20 packages in a season for some time now. i am very satisfied with delivery promptness, quality and service whenever things were not quite right and changes or replacements when they were necessary. your agents are very well trained in their maners when speaking and knowledge of your product to advise of your best offers on those products. a job well done. ***** five star
The best fruit, my family enjoyed the fruit i sent them.. five stars!!!
Great quality and flavor!
I gave the fruit as a gift at christmas time. it was said to be delicious. it was enjoyed very much. i may give it again next christmas.
Fruit...super! delivery problems. fruit was left outside homes, no note, no doorbell was rung to let recipients know there a package had been left and in a few cases the fruit froze and/or was ruined.
The best fruit that i have ever had! great prices!
Several of the honeybells shipped to me were very much on the dry-side, not characterisic of this variety we have enjoyed over the years. others in the shipment were tried-and-true honeybells.
Our friends and family truly enjoyed the fruit you sent them
Since this was my first experience with hale groves, i was delighted that the fruit arrived very fresh and on a timely basis. i am sure that i will again use your services, thank you for inquiring. perhaps a four and half stars.
Order delivered promptly. recipients report high quality
I love hale groves! they produce and delivery top quality products with a personal touch.
Very satisfied with product
Everyone who receives my gifts that i order from hale groves is so happy to get something delicious and healthy... plus they don't have to find a place to store it! when fruit arrives less than perfect... they replace it at no charge and don't make you feel bad about asking! i will continue to order my gifts from hale groves!
My father in law enjoyed his fruit very much!
Outstanding grapefruits every year. it is my one sense of happiness here in western ny to get my monthly shipment during the winter months.
My purchase was a gift to the family during chritmas .the oranges were well received they were kept on the porch and everyone who enter took from the box. i must say they were sweet and juicy.
Totally yummy citrus! a bit pricey, though, and beyond my budget, so i only purchase for gifts at christmas time.
My grapefruits just arrived as promised, and they look beautiful and will be great i know
Your fruit is always fantastic!
I ordered a mix of honeybells, tangerines and navel oranges for christmas. the honeybells and tangerines were truly superb! by comparison, however, the navel oranges lacked flavor - really no better than what i can buy at the grocery store. on-line ordering was easy. the product arrived on time and in excellent condition. i will definitely reorder next year but i will limit my order to the specialty products that i can't find in local stores. thanks, hale groves.
They have good deals and the fruit is good. they deliver on time and let you know when they ship. i have ordered from them for at least five years for christmas gifts.
Always top quality. been ordering for years.
Always top quality. been ordering for years.
Excellent service and excellent products. my northern relatives are extremely happy with the gifts i send them from hale groves.
We look forward to receiving our box every month with fresh oranges and grapefruit. we have had very few problems.
I have been very pleased with the service and the response to damage items received.
Very good citrus.
Your staff is very professional and i have recommended your business to my family and friends
I had received a complaint from my gift recipient that her oranges were old that is all documented. you sent her an additional order and two oranges to me. they were all enjoyed.....
Always love hales. and miss visiting. 2 bad oranges in this shipment. but quick ship and great quality otherwise
Grapefruit was great, both red and white. baby belle's and honeybells were good but had tough section skins.
We are enjoying our grapefruit very much, they arrived in very good condition, the fruit is delicious. we will order again. thank you lynne
Everyone enjoyed their taste of florida
I am very pleased with your product and your service definitely i will recommend your company to all of my friend and family i am happy to rated your company a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ thank you . maria thomas
This is an amazing place. the fruit is excellent quality. i have sent gift boxes to family who rave back to me. i have been a subscriber to the white grapefruit season for several years now. i am amazed how few fruit ever go bad, maybe 4 pieces in the whole 5 years plus, four (4w) a year. i am able to pay on line, or with a phone call. i strongly recommend them to anyone. my only complaint was they do not yet grow organic.
The fruit was excellent. my mom received her gift package and was thrilled!
My friends loved the fruit and selection. i was pleased
The people i sent your gifts to loved them. i will certainly order more from you this christmas or for any special occasions that come up.
Great customer service
Always the best in the state
Everyone i sent to, loved the gifts! i also believe your pricing was on target. thanks for making the selections affordable for middle class folks.
My family loved all the fruit!
Fruit and gifts arrive on time. i sent honeybells to some family members for valentines day and they loved them. said they were so juicy, the juice ran down their chins when they ate them. worth the mess, since they were so yummy.
Ordered a wonderful orange basket for my dad and the whole process was very easy, with super nice customer service people, fast shipping snd wonderful tasty oranges. my dad loved them!
Grapefruit was wonderful oranges (honeybell) had quite a few seeds to my disappointment, but the flavor was sweet and delicious.
Gave as gifts. one family said was amazing, no respinse from other family.
Very pleased with the oranges we received. they were juicy and sweet.
The fruit i ordered was black on the inside and i was given a full refund, which i found was very nice on your part.
Great company, great products!
Delicious orange and grapefruit varieties that more than pleased my family this year. we'll be back !
The oranges are very sweet and juicy
Sent gift basket for christmas and they loved it.
My last box (2 flats) of naval oranges was the best of all the oranges we received this season.
Sent oranges to two people in different parts of the u.s. and they both said oranges were in perfect shape and were wonderful when eating. will surely be placing more orders.
I sent your fruit to my father as a gift. he loved it. thank you!
No one seemed to have a complain with their gift,, i will order again, thank you!!
Your citrus was enjoyed by my aunt and uncle as a christmas gift!
I gave a case of grapefruit to my dad for christmas. he sends me a note or a picture every week of how much he loves the grapefruit. thank you for having such a great product!
As first time customers, we are most pleased with your service and produce!
I had been very unhappy with my local citrus shipper and had decided to move to a new one. i found you guys on line admittedly i selected you because your website told me that i would get free shipping on my four orders. your service was terrific and i'm told that your product was delicious. my family that received your shipments are your best boosters unfortunately, i was disappointed in the fact that i was told i would get a special price reduction on my four orders, i believe that i paid your full listed price on both your product and your shipping. supposedly, i ordered one of the few things that got no discounts. ever since christmas, i've gotten at least three e-mails a week from your company. every one of them has offered me a significant discount, a bogo deal or free shipping on yet another order. my experience tells me to not believe that. hopefully, any further orders i place will actually receive the deals i'm told i'll get.
We ordered for christmas presents and everyone really enjoyed the fruit.
Everything went well, the receipents loved the fruit, alto i did not get a chance to see the the fruit. will do it again.
The family i sent the fruit too said it was very good and fresh. i myself did not see or taste but believe them.
Quality and taste is excellent.
The best fruit at the best prices, always great deals.
It went well and quicker than anticipated. we'll do it again soon.
I am very pleased with the ease and dependability experienced when i placed and my order and when my recipient received the order! both orders placed were delivered in a timely manner. my recipient was extremely pleased with the taste of the oranges! so i sent him a second order. this kind of service is not common. i greatly appreciate the effort hale groves puts into their service!
Two of the oranges that were shipped to my friend were spoiled.
Perfect transaction thank you
The fruit was sent to family up north. they were very pleased. i would order again.
Your fruit is the best we have ever had. thank you.
All fine.the oh's very, very good but other seasons they've been better. i like your boses
I bought oranges - they were the sweetest i have ever eaten and i plan to buy some more next christmas as a gift to my self. no grocery store sells such delicious oranges.
Sent oranges to my son in minnesota. they arrived safely,prompt and he claims they were delicious. i'll be back for more
I will no longer order from this company! my last order was truly unacceptable!
It would be nice to offer free shipping on orders over a certain dollar amount.
Very tasty and juicy
These were christmas gifts for the family. everyone was very pleased with the wonderful fresh fruit! i just may have to do this again....
Your customer service staff could be better trained to be friendly. my family has ordered from you for 30 years at least. come on. step it up.
Excellent fruit. direct delivery to my place of business.
I enjoyed the honey bell oranges - they were very sweet. they didn't look like what i was expecting though. they were huge compared to what they looked like in the ad, making me wonder if they were really honey bells. some of them were extremely full of seeds. what counted in the final analysis was that they were juicy and sweet.
Fruit arrived on time and tasty for the holidays.
The gift i ordered arrived in good time. my brother, the one who received the gift enjoyed the fruit very much. he especially liked the oranges saying that they were very juicy.
The oranges were good, as far as i know. my daughter would have liked a slightly different combination of oranges.
Very happy with our hale groves gifts! thank you!
My family in colorado was thrilled with the many boxes of beautiful oranges i sent them from hale groves. knowing when they would arrive was great help too. a touch of fiorida to a cold winter day was very appreciated.
My friends loved these so much!! will send them again next christmas hopefully.
I did this already
The fruit was excellent. it arrived packed very nicely and all the fruit was in great condition. the honeybells are well worth the price. will definitely be trying fruit again from this great company.
The fruit arrived on time and was delicious. everyone enjoyed their fruit. thank you
Had a problem for the first time in many years of ordering from you. i was impressed with your companies quick replacement. i will certainly continue to order from you in the future.
Great florida citrus from a very dependable grove.
I love the way the friendly lady handle my complaint thank you
Fruit and candies were excellent!
Out of the three orders, one had some spoiled fruit. other than that everything was great.
Good products, good price, good service.
Great taste and on time delivery!
The fruit was excellent.both of the orders were on time and they had other companies to compare and both stated hale groves fruit was superior.thank you
Great quality and service
My order was a gift to friends and they were very satisfied with the quality.
My most recent order was for the tiny, sweet oranges and i have nothing but good to say about them. they arrived in good shape, none were damaged or rotted, and had the most sweetest orange taste you could imagine! would i order them again. . . yes definately!!!
All received on time. thanks.
We enjoy the fruit very much. it is so much better than the fruit from the grocery store.
Everyone enjoyed their christmas gifts! thank you
I could not complete the sale as the product could not be delivered on the day i wanted.
Great product and service!! these people are the best and i highly recommend. with all of our orders there was no problem and everybody love their product.
Very tastey loved the oranges sweet taste and easy to chew .
I rec'd my first gift frm hale 15yrs (?)ago! loved it and hav been sending them to fam and friends off and on over the years!! they love it. i get very good feedback from them- i just wish there was a way to get around the enormous shipping fees. ( in the age of free shipping its hard to purch frm vendors tht do not offer free shipping- but we love the product!!! b
Everything was shipped and received on time. however, some of the oranges were spoiled. overall very pleased! thank you!!
I sent two orders as christmas gifts and they were thoroughly enjoyed. they liked having a list of the type of citrus fruit and the children tried to match the oranges to the names. the gifts were spot on!
My family really enjoyed and appreciated the fruit. my only problem is i have had a hard time in getting them to send the order on the day i requested (3 years in a row)
Love the fruit, service & delivery. love the white grapefruit. thank you,
We had the fruit shipped to us and gave it to our children for gifts when they came for christmas dinner. they loved it!
I sent these to my mom in northern minnesota for an extra christmas treat. she absolutely loved them and loved the presentation, she took a picture and sent me. they were delivered on time and were a big hit, thanks so much
So grateful for your excellent customer service and beyond delicious fruit. the grapefruit, in particular, brings to mind olympian nectar. all hail to hale!
Very fast service and the fruit was great.
Your orange selection was especially enjoy by my children up north ...i am sure to keep up this tradition at christmas time .
The honeybelles were delicious!
Timing is everything & hale groves promises & delivers on time. the fruit is pretty darn good too!
The recipient of my hale groves gift was delighted and enjoyed all of the contents--they had nothing but praise!!
Fabulous fruit - beautiful and delicious -
Great customer service, also great oranges
My order came right on time and everything was fresh and delicious. my whole family was thrilled with having fresh fruit for christmas. i will definitely order from hale groves again.
The first batch sent to my cousin were all rotten (oranges). hale groves sent another box but that also had a few rotten ones. due to the above normal temperatures around the country, hale groves wrote, the weather plays a big picture in the stability of the fruit.
I purchased oranges which i found to be juicy and sweet. however the tangerines were a little tart for me
Great products, wonderful to work with and great service.......
I didn't see the oranges i sent but they were happy that's what counts.
I sent an order of the oranges in dec and they loved them as are out of state and not able to get good fresh fruit. they said loved them. i plan to place an order again soon possibly for myself to enjoy.
Good fruit. good service. expensive.
I sent out x'mas gifts to family and was very disappointing the fruit oranges some were rotten . and had to be discarded. so i will have to send something else out for gifts .thanks any way .eva martin
The fruit was delicious!
The gift box sent to my sister was replaced. the original was damaged upon receipt. i'm pleased. thank you.
They arrived beautifully to my sister living in ny ,she said they were delicious. sent her sunshine from fl. during christmas holiday
The fruit was delivered timely and to the proper recipients. they said it was delicious and appreciated.
The fruit was delivered timely & to the correct recipients. and, they said it was delicious.
Excellent fruit at a good price. delivery was made on the day promised and the package was in perfect condition. our daughter and her family really appreciated the oranges and grapefruit.
Our recipients just loved the triple gift, and others freezing in ny appreciated the gifts from sunshine state. thank you so much. we will surely do it again next year.
Family was delighted with gift
Good products delivered on time
I was completely satisfied with my gift order. i like reduced or free shipping. i plan to order from you again.
You are a super outfit with fantastic oranges. five stars definitely!
Oranges i received in good tome and were delicious. they were temples which are my favorite, and they are impossible to get in maryland. having lived in florida for 20 years, i love florida oranges--they are so much better than california ones which are the only ones i can usually get up here.
Great company-- always helpful and accommodating. fruit is always at its peak and delicious.
I really didn't get a confirmation that my party received the fruit or if it was tasty. from my end, price was reasonable and i may try again.
I can't get fl oranges locally. the quality is worth the extra cost
The first delivery of an order was stolen, but you very nicely replaced it.
The fruit was wonderful and arrived on time. everyone was very courteous and friendly. i would order from them again.
Hi, let me say this i and my friends have enjoyed the fruit. but in my first and second orders there have been rotten ones among my shipment. it has only been one per shipments. but it still concerns me. thank you for allowing me to enjoy your product and am looking forward to ordering real soon.
Was pleased with our shipment.
Very nice to work with, solved mailing problem immediately, will definitely order again.
Oranges were good
Everything was perfect i love everything i ordered thank you keep up the good work!!!
The grapefruits were great, and too juicy for a grapefruit spoon, i had to peel mine, it was still super juicy but very delicious, just make sure you have napkins!!
Great job. thank you
Our 3 faraway families loved it all! thank you so much. whole process was smooth and perfect delivery.
Your oranges are terrific
I have ordered from hale groves for two years now & they are wonderful! i send gift baskets at christmas and everyone has loved them! they arrive on time and in beautiful packages. thank you hale groves!
My loved ones were so thrilled when they received their christmas gift of fresh, delicious navel oranges, especially in the freezing, snowy temps in connecticut. thanks hale groves, you made their day.
Loved the fruit cake
My children loved their fruit at christmas time....i'll visit you again for other gifts. i should have sent myself some it sounded so good as my daughters were describing it to me. there was one bad orange in one of the boxes but that's to be expected i guess. thank you
I was originally upset with not up to par shipments but after one of your team members corrected this mistake without a squabble of any kind, i was very impressed with the handling of this unfortunate matter. i will use hale groves again as i know they will stand by their product.
My sister loved the fruit. a great gift idea.
All the fruits i ordered to different people were received on time and were delicious
Shipment arrived on time and the oranges and honeybells were the best i've had in years. no comparison between what you can buy up north in grocery stores.
Some of our crew request your fruit as christmas gifts. once there was a minor problem & we were thrilled with your customer service.
Much son complimented me on sending this gift of fruit and nuts. he truly loved them.
Everything was delicious and sweet. delivery as scheduled excellent. would like more free ship with sale packages of honey. bells, and sugar bells. i would order more if shipping were free!! thank you.
The best citrus we've ever tasted! hale groves customer service is equally wonderful. we are highly impressed.
Fruit could not be better!
I ordered various products for three different families for christmas, and each family independently raved about their hale grove gifts. the gifting of the citrus fruit solved gift-giving very easily. thank you very much.
Love your products. your grapefruits are the best.
The recipients of my gift were very pleased.
The fruit is very juicy and fresh. delivery was prompt and undamaged.
Shipped on time. i guess the were good as i had no complaints fro those that received.
Service was excellent! very easy ordering and sent as chriatmas gift...arrived as planned and fruit was wonderful. i think this pass christmas was the third time i requested gifts! thanks...we even received our own gift!
Everyone i sent your product to at christmas raved about it. i personally say it was outstanding. i would recommend your product to anyone. i will be using you for my next christmas list.
Everything great! my sister always a taste of fl!
Fresh juicy fruit. great delivery time
Awesome honey bells. delivery to ohio, a welcome treat.
My order was for another prson so i canot realy rate ur product
All the fruit i sent last december was well received and much appreciated!
I ordered 5 shipments of oranges this year: 2 navels for christmas delivery, 2 honeybelles for mid-january delivery and 1 for mid-february. all arrived on time and in good shape except the february shipment (mine) which had 2 spoiled and 3 dangerously soft but edible. next year i will request dec/jan deliveries only.
As you know, i sent two gift packs and bought one for myself. both recipients really enjoyed the fruit, as did i. you have excellent products
Service was great and all the citrus gifts were delivered on time. my family really enjoyed the gifts and i will do the same next holiday season.
The fruit packages i sent to clients were well received. they all loved them ! i loved the price !
Awesome!!! we have never had a bad experience with your products.
I gave a gift from hale groves and the first order was great. looking forward to hearing about the next shipment.
Delicious fruit!! service and shipping were excellent! thank you!! l
I have been loyal customer for many years. i feel i'm penalized if i order early in the holiday season - your prices drop dramatically later in the season. i think i should be rewarded with deals if i place an order early - and because of long term loyalty. thank you for considering
I have ordered from hale groves for the last number of years. i was always so happy with my produce. i have not been happy the past two years. i have called to report moldy fruit, chewy oranges, more soft fruit. i am sure that weather conditions plays into this. i did have some new replacement shipments sent, most better, some not, but none what they should be. i have made the decision to not order from your company again.
I was pleased that oranges arrived early. only 2 were bruised. they are delicious.
Your products are great...all recipients really enjoyed them this c mas...plan to order for them again next c'mas...thanks
Awesome oranges! thank you!
Grapefruit arrived first as expected and all three types were delicious. honeybells arrived in mid january and were also delicious.
Delicious fruit! many many steps above what you could get at the supermarket. well worth it!
Absolutely delicious oranges. so juicy and sweet. all were thoroughly savored! thanks.
5 you folks were especially nice in handling our order.
Very sweet and tasty.
All the fruit was very good. the oranges were sweet.
I ordered oranges for my mom to be delivered to n.c. they arrived as promised , however one was bad. my mom called and informed the folks at hale groves and the customer service person apologized and shipped out 3 oranges to replace the one. thank you so much for making my mom's day and going way beyond what would have been fair. great products,great service.
Your honey bells are the best!
Sent many baskets to family and friends up north. they all absolutely loved a bit of florida sunshine in a box ! we've started a new tradition for sure .....
The honeybells were good and i'll give 4 stars on that basis. the navel oranges were not as good as those available locally they were juicy but not flavorful. the grapefruits were good, but not that much better than those in local stores. as for the mangoes i ordered last august, they had the buttery texture i wanted and a few of them had outstanding flavor. others were only very good. i'll order them again if the price is reasonable.
Christmas shipments of fruit all arrived in time. one package was lost in transit and their customer service team sent out a new package by express that arrived just in time for the holiday. all fruit was well-received and our family raved about the taste.
I love everything about your company it make christmas so much easier for me the fruit is perfect and always on time what a great job you all do thanks so much.
Everyone loved their fruit, especially the kids. the perfect healthy gift!
I received high comments regarding your product which inspires me to make additional orders to your company. thank you.
Repeat customer. good service.
Sent as gift to family. arrived on time & they said the fruit was the best they had ever had. thank you.
Amazing company, great fruit. not much more i could ask for. it could get a little pricey if i was buying monthly so i usually just wait for special occasions.
I have never had such juicy tasty honey bells! i bought a case and shared with friends and everyone i shared with were defiantly surprised at the flavor of these! i shared so many, i had to order another case so i could eat some! so much better than what you buy at the store! if you haven't tried them yet, you must try them...i promise you won't be disappointed!
One box was for a granddaughter and they never received the shipment, that was to moses lake, wa. the other gifts were appreciated by all. thanks. howard
Excellent quality, out of many orders only one was spoiled, no biggy
I've only ordered for christmas. your people are most courteous on the phone. those that receive the fruit are very pleased with the gift. i have never ordered any for myself. perhaps one day, i shall.
My family enjoyed the citrus that i sent to them. one day i hope to have enough spare money to send myself a gift - but as of now i will just send gifts to friends and relatives.
The cake was a hit at the holiday family dinner!
Every thing was taken care of very well.
I bought the grapefruit for my daughter and she loved them
The fruit is good. sometimes the boxes are damaged and some fruit rotten.
Wonderful tasty gift for family, friends and me.
I like to be able to order online, and the fruit is good.
Service was excellent via the phone and the gift was received on time in good condition.
Price to value ok - fruit good but not sure i would pay full price
Was a gift and the recipients loved the grapefruit and you were kind enough to make sure everything was was perfect!
Oranges and tangelos were good and were delivered in a timely manner to three different locations. i will use again.
We have enjoyed your oranges for many years -- we send them to family in newfoundland for a christmas treat --
Everyone enjoyed the citrus. they called to thank me. thank you for doing such a good job
Every one loved the items they went to people living in very cold climates.
Great fruit. my grandchildren were so excited to receive them.
Very satisfactory. if there is a problem, you fix it and make it right. i like that.
Honeybells were very good. the grapefruit were good and we had one that was bruised.
The honey bell oranges i ordered were received. there were 3 spoiled and moldy oranges in the order. i called and informed your representative. he thanked me for the call. the spoiled oranges were replaced with 6 good ones. i very much appreciate that. the oranges were delicious. carol dye
You always go the extra 20 miles and treat me like family ! your phone people are full of care and compassion ! the receivers of the gifts are always delighted ! may god, the only creator of the universe bless you all !!
Sent beautiful orange gift boxes ato christmas to numerous people and every one loved them. your company does a nice job and beautiful presentation.
The fruit was enjoyed throughly.
I love sending the giant boxes of oranges and grapefruits to my family in minnesota and to my financial advisor in minnesota. they so much appreciate the citrus fruit in the middle of the cold winter. a great gift for everyone. ruth
I don't know why i received this survey. i have not ordered antyhing recently and have not received a gift from hales groves.
It was a wonderful experience ordering christmas fruit for family members. there was one snag with confusion of an address, but the customer service representative resent another box of fruit and it still arrived prior to christmas. thank you.
I experienced good service and beautiful fruit from hale groves.
I ordered from hale for christmas gifts and it was easy ! my family was thrilled to receive such beautiful and delicious fruit.
The lady i sent the oranges to, at christmas time, said she preferred the taste of the navels i sent her the year before. sorry i will have to send her that companies order instead of hale. thank you for asking.
We have enjoyed your oranges for many years and send them to our family in newfoundland -- who can't get oranges from a grove any other way!
Love this company. always satisfied with what i send out every year for gifts. can't go wrong with hales groves and there service and products.
The gifts sent were all enjoyed and the fruit excellent in quality!
Very happy with your service and will keep you in mind for the future.
You were my christmas shopping list. so healhy.
Family loved this gift in previous years, so we sent a sure thing with your product again! never disappointed...
We have ordered christmas gifts for family members and will continue to do so because the oranges are the best. your customer service people truly care. had a problem once (bad orange) and it was immediately solved.
I have been sending fruit from hale for many years and the recipients are amazed at how fresh and good it is. it gets to the destination right on schedule and there are some good bonuses . thank you hale groves.
The people i send gifts too are pleased with the fruit from your company.
I always send hale grove oranges to my family for christmas. they always arrive in good shape and are gratefully received by all. has become a christmas tradition
Had to change shipping date and your staff was incredibly fantastic to work with. great fruit and ordering experience
While it takes a while to get the products shipped, the gifts are very nice. i've ordered gifts twice. the first was greatly appreciated. the second is on it's way. i hope my brother -in-law will enjoy it.
We have enjoyed sending your oranges to our family in newfoundland every christmas. they cannot get oranges like that there -- real from the grove oranges. it is always a joy to share them --- susan
I heard from people that i sent fruit too that they were not happy with it hale groves sent them new fruit too replace the bad fruit
My recipients of my christmas shipments were very happy with the oranges - i relied on their comments. you get a 5 star rating from me.
Feedback from recipients is very positive, very satisfied. i will continue to order from hale groves for future needs and gift giving.
The honeybells weren't as sweet as i expected. shipment was packaged well, but they were overpriced based on the quality.
I send your products to my cousins several times a year and they absolutely love them for their freshness and taste.
We signed up for the citrus club - 5 monthly shipments of different variaties. the first shipment of navels was a little disappointing - several arrived damaged and the texture of a few was strange. rest were good as have been all the rest of the shipments. currently eating temples, which are delicious. ordered grapefruit separately and they are particularly good. will we do this next year? probably - we've certainly enjoyed a quality of fruit we can't get locally.
All the fruit i sent was enjoyed by everyone..no negatives..#3 time in 3 yrs for me..
Placed 3 orders for family up north. asked all for product reviews. only 1 had a problem. explained to hale and replacements were sent. will use hale again for upcoming holidays.
Everyone who received your citrus was very satisfied with the quality and flavor. to me, as the sender, your service is tops.
I am completely satisfied with the product and the service!!
Love your ruby red grapefruit. received very fresh!
My grandkids love your fruit! they eat it like candy, thank you
The first round of oranges we received this year had no flavor and were a little dry. customer service was a little slow to respond, but when they did were very friendly and professional. they replaced the fruit with no questions. since then, we have received 4 more orders of fruit and they have all been excellent!
I buy grapefruit for my sister at christmas. i don't appreciate receiving several emails a day. i am considering unsubscribing. best grapefruit, worst spam.
Some inconsistencies in freshness and taste. overall i enjoyed very much. it's great to have delicious and healthy snacks available .
My parents really enjoyed this gift. thank you, hale groves!
Very few pieces of fruit damaged and good taste
The family is thoroughly enjoying eating and juicing the honeybells!
I was very satisfied and so were the receivers.. my only complaint is the cost of the shippping..it makes it's too expensive to order amd have it sant.
This was a gift to my son and his family. while visiting them, i also had the opportunity to enjoy the delicious flavor.
The first batch of oranges in december was awful so i emailed customer service. very apologetic and apparently they froze in transit. sent me a new batch in february as well as another to my gift recipient. second boxes were excellent. i had no problem with january and most current order. i will surely order for hale again. way to make it right!
I was a bit disappointed because one temple was covered in mold that i had to toss and a part of another one was discolored/bruised. and there was a small cut on the end of one more temple orange. not to sound fussy but for the price i'm paying all 12 oranges should be in perfect condition.
Always the right gift at the right time and a great value.
The fruit was very tasty and made a wonderful gift to the person who has everything. we will order again.
Your navels and honeybells were so good, looking forward to ordering more items for this summer.
All of my recipients are raving about your products!
My nieces enjoyed the christmas gifts i sent. another gift package went to a friend with two sons, all of whom sent many thanks. it was good to take advantage of your buy one, give one free, as i am living on low income, but gave generously.
Purchased a fruit of the month for 6 months for my sweetheart marie! she was estatic and just not sure what she would do with all that fruit. well we have been able to enjoy it without any concerns. nice variety of fruit and delicious.
I ordered several of your gift boxes for relatives in the northern states. the arrived on schedule and the feedback we received about the fruit was they were awesome! thank you for a quality product. we will make our fruit gifts a family tradition. r/dan floridian
Everything that we ordered arrived in a timely matter and it was reported back to us how much it was enjoyed thank you for great service and products
Very nice fruit courteous customer service. thanks
All purchases were for gifts. they all say that you have to eat the oranges over the sink, as they are loaded with a lot of juice.
Love working there and all the people i work with
Loved your honey belles! i sent some to a friend & her family as well as my son & his family. my friend was delighted & enjoyed them! she did complain that 3 had a hard type middle but enjoyed the rest. my son's family had no complaints.
Great place to order fruit from. workers as re very professional
Really delicious! but there was one spoiled honeybell in the box.
Oranges and grapefruit better than tangerines, which have too many seeds
Excellent product, excellent service! keep up the good work!
Honeybells are great
Family was very pleased with quality of fruit
My brother loved his oranges for his birthday. such a healthy gift! thanks
Oranges tasty and sweet
As always your fruit is impecable and packed so well.i received my tangerine order on the 12th of december,had one today,and still have one left.i also ordered a package for my neighbors who were delighted. i will be ordering again in the fall.btw----i was a supervisor in the phone room for three years in the late 80's !why wouldn't i continue to get the best?

My neighbors, the chalupas, really enjoyed the oranges and let us know that they found this to be an excellent gift for them.
Thank you for all the fresh boxes of fruit i purchased as christmas gifts. everyone who received them was thrilled with their gift. you can be sure that i will order again in the near future. thank you so much.
We were very pleased with your delicious product. but, living on a fixed income, does not allow us to gift others. often. your folks that do the phone call orders are delightful and sweet!
Great service and great fruit!
I gave a box of assortedoranges to a relative after the death of their son. the box of oranges was perfect! the oranges arrived a few weeks later and it showed that we were still thinking of them.
My family and friends in iowa always enjoy them.....
I've only had two orders with hale. both were gifts to my ailing dad. one was of incredible quality, one was of horrible quality. all it took was one call to customer service, and they took care of the problem right away. that deserves 5 stars in my book.
Fruit arrived on time. very sweet and juicy. so glad that i found you
Working my way through one box of 16 i believe and have already ordered another box. i love white grapefruit and yours are the best i have eaten...
My friends in tennessee were delighted with the grapefruit i sent them.
Every grapefruit was delicious, meaty and juicy. i rationed them so they would last longer. the packaging was perfect.
Well pleased. .will certainly continue to order at for holiday at christmas.
Good product for the price will try you again
All of the fruit gifts were delivered on a timely manner and were of excellent quality.
Great product at good prices!
The baby bell oranges we ordered were delicious and so juicy.
Great customer service and wonderful product!
Product was delivered promptly as promised in excellent condition.
My family really enjoyed the oranges and they arrived all good
Your fruit was very good this year.
Your fruit is delicious......
Excellent oranges and beautiful honey bells.......
Great service....wonderful product. i would use hale groves again. you can count on delicious tasting fruit!
I was excited to get your fruit because i had heard such great things. i received some in december and some in january. the ones i got in january looked great, but were a little soft/mushy and went bad really fast - in about 10 days they were moldy. i guess this is part of picking them when they are ripe, but maybe if they came with instructions about how long they would last or to refrigerate immediately, it would help those of us that don't know better.
We're very disappointed in the quality of fruit/tangerines hard and could not get them to peel. honeywell oranges were lacking in juice and seemed to have a bitter taste.
Very tasty oranges and grapefruits.
Most of the orders i ,family and friends recieved were delicious. one order of oranges was not good they were dry and tasteless but one email from me to customer service and the problem was solved. my account was credited for the full amount. i would recommend hale groves to other friends and family.
I send your fruit to family living up north. they have all lived in florida at one point in time and they all say that what i send them surpasses whatever they can buy in stores. so i keep sending it.
Both grapefruit and oranges were sweeter than candy!
All arrived in prefect condition. excellent fruit!!!!!
All of your fruit were very good .was out of the world for greatness.
The gift basket i purchased for a christmas gift for friends was well received and enjoyed by them!!!!
I've continued to place my orders with hale groves because my family gives you a great rating every year. my granddaughter especially loves your ruby red grapefruit. i've never had a complaint! thank you
I have always loved temple oranges but these were outstanding!
Delicious, will order again
Most everything was very good. was kind of disappointed in the honey bells i have had them before this year they pealed hard and that made a real mess.still tasted good
Very pleased with the product and the service. shipping took a little longer than expected but not bad.
We love your fruit--always the freshest. and the gift i sent was well received and much commented on by the recipient. it's nice to know you can trust some mail orders and we certainly do trust you.
Ordered oranges and honey bells for my mom for christmas. she received the oranges on time and in good condition. have done this several years and plan to continue.
Fabulous citrus and exceptional service. fruit arrived right on time as scheduled and in perfect condition. the oranges are juicy and sweet and the grapefruit have just the right amount of tang. i will always buy my citrus from hale groves. thanks for a wonderful product!
Your oranges were purchased for a family member for christmas. we didn't have them personally but the person they were sent to thought their fruit was very good, sweet and juicy.
We have sent assortments of fruit to our sons in colorado and california,with hale groves over the past few years and are very happy with the service,cost,and quality of product which has been delivered.
From the start,the people who ans.the phone on time delivery and quality fruit i will use you again.thanks,mike
Year after year our northern relatives enjoy the fresh fruit from hales.
The second batch of honey bells was not quite as good as the first but we enjoyed the oranges. we plan to order more oranges next season.
Yummy and good service
2 oranges were bad in each box i ordered
The quality of the fruit was delicious, the delivery was timely, the customer service was excellent.
I do much of my christmas shopping through hale groves. they make it really easy. every december i get a list of last year's gifts: whom i had gifts sent to, what i sent them. i mark up the list - change a gift, change an address if necessary, add new names - and mail it back to hg, and i'm done. and people love getting the fruit, which is delicious.
The fruit this year was perfect. last year we got some rotten pieces, but everything was great this year.
Took three tries (paid for only one) but just received delicious navels and grapefruits. i'd give you 5 stars if it had all been right the first time. excellent customer service.
Beautiful & delicious oranges
Our recipients were happy with their gifts, but a few pieces of fruit were unacceptable and not edible in one daughter's gift. our fruit was good.
Delicious! they are the best, so juicy and just perfect. will definitely reorder.
The fruit was very good and they were a great gift.
Have always enjoyed your fruit, from the time we lived in roseland, to texas, to jacksonville, fl.
Ordering is a breeze, delivery was spot on, and my friends loved it!
Great value, greater tasting. mmmm, honeybells, my fave.
Love the cirros pears - best i've ever had. will reorde again.
Reduce your e-mails to a max of i/week you have a good product but the frequency of e-mails is irritating
My shipment was almost two weeks late. i suspect that was due to the extreme cold weather and snow here in the northwest. thank you for waiting. as far as the shipment goes. what a disappointment! the honeybells were much smaller than any i have ever received. the fruit is overripe if i judge it by how fragile the segments are. the grapefruit are either green or the skins were not dyed. the quality of your prosuct has been declining significantly in the past few years. i will have to think seriously about what to do in the fall
Four stars because both cakes were sent to me, instead of 1 going to me and the other to receipents of the honeybells. luckily i was able to get it to them. great cake, and they loved the honeybells.
Have ordered baskets for christmas gifts two years in a row. friends and family enjoy the freshness of the fruit and it is always shipped in time for christmas. would recommend hale groves for any occasion.
Enjoyed the honeybell oranges they we're very juicy. i will order them again next year.
Good service. fruit was excellent.
Have never been disappointed with my orders. everybody i send them to are pleased also.
Excellent products-fresh and delicious, a real favorite to all. friends and family look forward to receiving these gifts!
Fruit ordered was gift for brother. he said it was excellent. was a mix of oranges, apples and pears, and included some candy and nuts. will order again.
I have been ordering your fruit for years. service is very good. absolutely no complaints
The absolute nicest fresh fruit that i have ever ordered! delicious!
Everything was perfect. all the fruit was fresh, arrived on time and was received in excellent condition. will be ordering again for this christmas.
Everyone said the fruit was great.
It's a treat to get citrus so fresh
Person i send the package to was more then pleased they couldn't get over how delicious everything was. thank you for the great service you provide!
Your products were absolutely outstanding!!! more than that, when i had questions about delivery times, your staff could not have been nicer!!!
I live on an island so delivery takes a bit longer than for many. this, i have received some spoiled fruit, particularly temple oranges. but this is understandable. and the pink grapefruit make up for any spoilage completely!
Received honeybees on scheduled delivery date and in great condition. juicy, juicy and sweet.
Good products and delivered as promised.
I have been buying hale groves fruit since 1982 when i lived in new jersey, delaware since 2004 now in alabama, l believe that this is the best fruit, i buy fruit for my family and friends to get them to buy the best.
Great presentation & was told they were delicious!
Always excellent!! look forward to the honeybells more than anything. top quality and service.
I would rate the products i have received- some for gifts and some for me- with 5 star as all have been in excellent condition and taste great. thanks. hale groves.
Everyone loved the oranges. every year i send them out, they are always welcome.
I sent three orders of oranges to family for christmas. everyone loved the fruit.
Quality product and dependable service. thanks
I ship fruit to mom and an aunt back home in il. both love seeing your boxes arrive. both love the color and freshness of your fruit. both tell me that every piece is perfect.
One recipient of my gift expressed that some of the oranges were spoiled but they did enjoy the ones that were good.
The gift basket we sent to my family for christmas was well received and my family said the fruit was juicy and sweet. thank you!
Juicy and delicious. loved them.
The reciepients of my gifts loved them. thank you.
We received some damaged fruit. it was replaced without question and promptly. thank you.
This is the second year i ordered from hale groves -- gotta love those returning customers, right? and this year i had a glitch in one address....and you all made the correction run quite smoothly. i'll be back next year for sure!
I had to pay for the oranges i sent to relatives and friends and didn't include myself. i wish i had since most of the oranges from the grocery store were not very good. i received 2 oranges from my brother on his way home from florida and they were not good. to have one of your oranges would be wonderful.
My family loved the oranges. they said there was only one problem - there weren't enough of them! so i had to send more!
Your products and services are wonderful and i have used them for years. however, i just do not care to receive your sales information and promotions throughout the year.
We look forward to ordering fruit for friends and family because it's always delicious. my only complaint is you can't ship to texas where we have moved and means we can't enjoy any.
Our gift was enjoyed tremendously. the oranges were delicious and arrived on time.
The tangerines that i sent as a holiday gift were reported to be excellent ( sweet sugar water )by the recipient.
Fresh and great quality
My daughter and son-in-law received their housewarming grapefruit today. problem is the greeting said happy birthday. you goofed. at least the fruit is good. i hope my brother-in-law's birthday grapefruit has the correct greeting.
The temple oranges that just arrived are wonderful!! they continue to be up to hale's excellent standards. thank you for such beautiful fruit!
The product was delivered in good shape exactly when promised. we will definitely order from hale again!
I love the oranges i received and still am eating them...and my cousins up north that i sent to also said great fruit..
Best navel oranges on the planet!
I have been correcting a large amount of virus from hale groves for the last two years. this year i decided to purchase some honeybells for a neighbor and family here in florida. sadly, there were at least four rotten honeybells the could not be eaten. i removed the rotten honeybells and gave the neighbor a tray that had good fruit. thank you, margie
All recipients loved the fruit. deliveries were timely. thank you
Beautiful fruit & always delivered on time.
We can only hope that those friends and family members who received our gifts of hale groves enjoyed them i have not heard from any of them. i'm rating you highly because of your customer service, great offerings, and speedy delivery. thank you.
Have received 6 boxes of fruit this year and each and everyone was packed and shipped and met all i thought it should be. grapefruits, honeybells, oranges were delicious, sweet and juicy. have given hale groves name to several friends so they can taste and enjoy as i enjoy each and every bite. thanks hale groves for this experience not only this year but last year. will continue to order in the future.
Sent these for xmas... i had several really good comments on this fruit. will order again for sure!!
Ordered two trays of navels for self and two as a gift. my navels were a little less sweet than previous year's and we only had 2 oranges in the 4 trays that were rotten. honeybells on the gift order were outstanding.
Great service - our gift recipients told us how much they enjoyed the delicious fruit.
Our friends and family were very happy with the basket of oranges. and happy that it was delivered on time.
Great customer service great product choice. excellent quality. i would recommend this organization. five star (5) rating!
I have been sending fruit to my parents for years. no matter what i order it always arrives in good shape on time. only once did they have even one piece of not top quality fruit and you replaced that. extremely pleased. glad you have some smaller packages available.
I have never had anything from you for myself everything has been sent as gifts. the feedback on those has been 100% favorable as to quality, packaging and delivery. i would love to treat myself, but i live alone so the larger packages would not be practical and the price as well as the shipping costs on smaller packages make it way too expensive.
I have been buying from you for years. never disappointed.
Very satisfied customer
Great quality and service, my only regret is that i can't have your grapefruit any longer due to my medicine. but my daughter and granddaughter are grateful!
Quality and service excellent! my only regret is that i'm taking statins for colesteral
We thoroughly enjoyed the honeybells. they put sunshine in our winter days. sweet and very juicy.
The honnybells and grapefruit arrived in excellent condition. we have tried them both since they arrived yesterday and they were delicious.
We have relied on hale for christmas deliveries to our ct family. sadly, this year some rotten/rotting fruit was involved. however, you were true to your word and sent fresh fruit. good move.
Very nice fruit with excellent delivery.
I have ordered hale fruit, as gifts, for many years and the company has always stood behind the goodness of their fruit and replaced any that was not of the quality they advertise. i have had many comments on the tastiness of the fruit.
We ordered the white grapefruit since it is impossible to buy them in our local stores. the grapefruit were exactly what i wanted they were large, pulpy, juicy and yes, sweet. we've enjoyed every last one of them. i would recommended these fantastic grapefruit to everyone who wants to taste a real grapefruit. love them, thanks again for continuing to grow and sell them.
I give your boxes of fruit for christmas as gifts and i have heard that they are delicious.
I always send fruit to my family and friends during the christmas holidays , i know i can always place my order and sit back and relax. the oranges are always fresh and delicious! i love when the family calls and are so thankful.
Should give free oranges to customers who buy a bunch for other people. i spend a lot of of money on getting these for others and never get any myself.
Excellent service, speedy delivery.
Sorry, but i only use your services at christmas. there is no need to send me e-mails during the year.
I have been sending fruit to my friends and family every christmas. only one complaint. some oranges were rotten last year.
Great gift boxes!
Delicious fruit! the grapfruit was very good. one order (and i had many) contained a few pieces of bad/moldy fruit, but you kindly (over!) replaced it after customer contacted you. thank you.
The fruit was ordered for gifts. all the recipients enjoyed it. one person had a piece of severely damaged fruit, but hale groves gladly replaced it. i was quite satisfied with the purchase.
My mother loved the sliced fruitcake variety box she received for christmas.
The honeybells are so juicy and delicious. i like the way they are packed. keep up the good work.
Every one is very happy with their christmas gifts. thanks for producing and sending excellent produce.
I have ordered fruit in the past and have always been pleased. this is order was no different. everything was great..
My husband said his christmas gift of hale honeybells are always his favorite gift. this year's crop was the best yet!!
Hale groves has consistently delivered the best florida fruits of the four companies i have used over the years. high quality, great selection and always on time with no problems or complaints, ever.
Was able to happen upon a very nice discount for our xmas orders.
The orders that were delivered for christmas 2015 were good or at least no one said otherwise. however, two of the five that i had sent this christmas, 2016, had bad fruit. customer service graciously credited my account for the cost of both orders.
Order delivered on time. all recipients enjoyed the gifts
Previously responded. excellent delicious fresh fruit !
Love the fruit. too many emails however. i bought what i could in dec.
I enjoy your navel oranges and red grapefruit. what a wonderful treat at christmas time. it reminds me of my grandma and grandpa who would send us florida oranges at christmas time when they wintered there during the winter months. it was a regular present and your fruit helps me recreate those memories. i am never disappointed!
Thank you, everyone enjoyed the fruit and i think you do a wonderful job. sometime soon i need to order some more grapefruits. thanks again and i know that my family truly appreciates your wonderful and delicious fruit. god bless & keep you is our prayer. mary
Used your company for years with excellent results.
Fruit was very good but in the future if you ask us when we would like it delivered please deliver it on the week we requested not a week earlier.
Thank you so much for making it possible to bless my family in the us with delicious fresh fruit each winter. as always, i am very happy with the service, and they absolutely love the sugar bells and honey bells! :-)
I would give the delivery 5 stars and the beautiful oranges 5,stars. i have ordered from other companies and had oranges that were frozen and spoiled. every orange was from hale groves was delicious and fresh. great job and much appreciated!
Have never been disappointed with the gifts we sent. it is so embarrassing to have a poor quality shipment sent to friends. thanks for taking good care of us..
Thank you , delicious fruit!
Wonderful! ship up north twice a year, every year. our family has never received a bad orange. and shipping is always right on schedule as promised.
One of the shipments i had sent for christmas did not indicate who had sent it. they only found out where it came from after i called to find out if they had received it
My mom and dad have really enjoyed the navel oranges. they said they are juicy and sweet. the sales rep i spoke to when i placed my order was very pleasant and helpful. this is the second year i have ordered oranges for christmas and have not been disappointed at all. i order oranges to be delivered dec jan and feb. delivery is prompt and i have never had any problems
My friend and his wife said the basket with fruit and covered popcorn was beautiful. it had apples, oranges, grapefruits, etc. we are very happy and the shipping was only about $4.00 total. thanks for asking!
A great company to order fruit from. makes the long winters bearable.
Recipients were delighted and especially noted the wonderful taste and juiciness, for adults and children
We appreciate fresh citrus fruits that are sweet, juicy, and affordable, and they make welcome gifts, too, so we look to hale groves for what we want in variety and timely deliveries!
Very pleased with your fruit each year. your service was also excellent.
I've ordered from hale groves several times now as something extra-nice to send to my family for special celebrations. each time, they have been blown away by the quality of your fruit. they absolutely love it! i've looked at other companies providing a similar product, but why would i even mess with perfection? keep up the spectacular job that you do!
The people i sent the fruit to all reported it being very good.
I love their fruit. i know this is what kept me healthy over the winter. always fresh and always good.
Service is great and product is exceptional!
Order was delivered but not in the time frame that was requested. no complaints about the product. the first time i put in an order with your company was about a year ago and the product was never delivered to the address i had given. was told by you that address did not exist but you made the delivery to the same address this year. the first order i made was cancelled because you said it could not be delivered
My nephew said everything was great
Bought lots of citrus from you this year, still more to buy, and get quality product and service from your company. won't buy from any other citrus grower!
The order was placed for a christmas gift delivery which was received on the due date and was very much appreciated. thank you for your service.
I have enjoyed your products for over 20 years. i often send them for gifts. i recommend hale groves to all my friends and family. the best fruit comes from hale. thank you for many years of wonderful fruit.
Great choice for your citrus packages. i have been sending christmas gift boxes for years. everyone loves always fresh and always on time.
My wife looks forward to the honeywell's and grapefruit each winter. it's such a treat. the quality of the fruit is fantastic.
Great service delicious fruit fresh & tasty loved by all
Always on time and wonderful
Shipment arrived when i told it would and traveled a long way into the great plains during snow/blizzards and postal delivery 20 miles on a gravel road yet arrived in perfect condition! my aunt and her family thoroughly enjoyed the varied assortment of oranges....which are a luxury and very,very expensive in the small town she lives in.
We love ordering from you and the recipients seems to all enjoy your fruit. we are awaiting the arrival of our honey bell order. that is all we'll be ordering until next early december. there is no need to keep sending e-messages until closer to the holidays. thanks so very much.
Always a pleasure buying citrus and sending it from hale to ohio.
First it was the thin skin(unlike the california thick skin) navels and now the honey bells. these fruits are out of this world! i eat them over the sink. so much juice and so sweet!
Excellent... yummy. this is the 5th time we have sent as gifts.... always loved.
Delicious and very well packed.
I love oranges from florida. my order shipped for the date i had specified, i have no complaints.
I just received a shipment of ruby reds and honeybees--my favorites. happy to say they lived up to their reputation....delicious!
Once again we sent fruit to out of state relatives. they all loved the quality and taste. i think they will all be hoping for similar gifts next christmas.
Pleased with the orders i have had, your help carey's, some were helpful and others we're not, they did nit know about the special, was on hold a lot.
I always like dealing with the folks at hale groves. i always enjoy the products. my last 3 tray order of oranges did have a few that were spoiled. the rest were really great. i will continue using hale groves.
I have been sending fruit from hale groves for more than ten years and just a couple of bad fruit got sent. i just called hales groves and they corrected the order and shipped it to the clients. the fruit has been packed and shipped correctly and arrived on time. i will highly recommend hale groves to anyone.
I order your fruit at christmas, for gifts. it is always well received. it is of high quality fruit. i appreciate the assistance i get when i call to ordered.
I have received no complaints from the people that i have sent fruit over the years. my only complaint is,that it is billed to the credit card several weeks before it is shipped.
I have given your fruit as gifts for the past few years and they love them.
A kind of mixed bag this year some ok and some dry a bit disappointing
Although my last order turned out bad, i do appreciate your kind refund. this was the first time that i sent your product as a gift and both parties complained about damaged fruit! i shall continue buying from you because 95% of the time it has always been excellent!
The best! my parents came across a roadside hale stand in florida decades ago and my entire family continues to order from them to this day. the red navel oranges are the best and quite a treat in december. nothing like it in the grocery store! highly recommend the red grapefruit and valencia oranges also. you won't be disappointed!
Oranges and other fruit are received in perfect condition and are delicious! great customer service when i have a delivery question. thank you! i can always trust you.
I have been very satisfied with the quality at hale groves. everyone that has received hale as a gift has nothing but good things to say about your product.
Everyone received fruit but very late. one address had five bad oranges, two had two and i had one. the good ones were very good.
The variety in gift packs is very good and at great value and the fruit is tasty. had one issue and it was remidied with double the fruit. great service. it's become an annual gift for family and friends.
I sent your products as gifts and everyone raved about how delicious they were. vary pleased with your quality.
Everyone said the oranges were the best they have ever eaten. we have sent them as part of our xmas gifts for the last 2 years & will do so again this year.
The oranges were great,had 9 bad ones must have been to warm will order again next year.
These were gifts and everyone was pleased to receive them. they arrived when stated and evidently the fruit, nuts, and the honey was delicious. i wouldn't choose any one else for my christmas gifts.
Great friut,hreat delivery. and the boxes are perfect for holiday storage!
Everyone always loves the oranges that we sent to them. delivery is fast and the fruit is fresh. thanks for the great service.
We order fruit for christmas gifts. our relatives always tell us how good the fruit is. it would be nice if there were a way to indicate how often we wanted information. since we only order at christmas, the other catalogs and e-mails are a waste of time and money.
Everyone who i have sent a box for hale groves has loved them. it is nice to know they are enjoying wonderful fruit from an american company with such high standards of quality!
I faithfully wait for jan and feb every year to get my fill of honeybelles.
My entire family is hooked on the sugarbells and honeybells. you will definately keep seeing orders coming in every year from us. thank you hale groves for the best!!!
Timely delivery. easy to order online and great service.
All the items that i ordered as gifts arrived at all the addresses. the recipients were very pleased with everything. they said that everything was fine and tastes great. i send gifts regularly from you and have never been disappointed.
Excellent product (oranges), fair price (very fair), shipment right on time. a fine orgination to deal witth.
Good service. good fruit. delivered on time.
I love your navel oranges and ruby red grapefruit. both are unbelievably and deliciously sweet! my only gripe: shipping costs.
Always enjoy these honey bell oranges. they arrive promptly and in excellent shape. they are sweet and very juicy which is perfect for eating out of hand or juicing.
I have been very pleased and happy with your produce and your customer service.it's a pleasure doing business with you all.
Thank you for contacting me about ordering. i had been disappointed in the 2015 produce, but your 25% off offer encouraged me to try again. the fruit was delicious! i will be ordering again.
I and the people to whom i send as gifts are always very happy with your products. the fruit is delicious and always a very happy gift. top ratings always!
The fruit tasted great but one was spoiled on arrival.
My 99 year old mother received her fruit basket in time for christmas! thank you so much!
Two years in a row hale groves were a winner.
My order was sent to oregon. quite a distance from florida. the fruit was well packed and delicious. there was one spoiled orange.(which can easily happen whem shipping such a long distance). i contacted hale groves and they responded immediately and sent a replacement. i will continue to do business with hale groves and enjoy fresh fruit in these cold winter months.
I ordered 2 for gifts and each receiver was pleased with your product.
Very satisfied a+ thank you
Have been ordering hale groves for holiday gifts and for my family for many years and have never been disappointed.
Delivery is prompt and fruit is top quality. always place my holiday orders with hale
My gift was very well received by the recipient.
Sent oranges as gifts. they arrived on time and in good condition. recipients said they were great tasting. we have ordered from hale groves for several years and never been disappointed.
I have used hale's for many years, and i can express that i have been very satisfied with the service that i have received . i truly have no complaints with them. they have fulfilled and completed all orders with no problems , which i think is great business.
Had zero bad fruit, it arrived on time, and was/is delicious.
All orders arrived in great shape
I like that if i call you.... some one answers the thing that i look for is shipping fees. i like that i can order at any time day or night........thank you audrey...
In the past i have been extremely pleased with the quality and flavor of the items i have purchased from hale groves. because of a medication i am taking i can no longer enjoy your delicious grapefruit. i was disappointed with my recent purchase of honeybells. they were mediocre--dry and not very sweet. i could have bought comparable citrus at the local supermarket at a fraction of the price.
Especially liked the juicy red grapefruit.
I have sent baskets as gifts the last two years. my mother celebrated a land mark birthday on christmas eve. the fruit was shared and enjoyed but the caramel popcorn was not shared.. she wasn't giving any of that to anyone but herself...lol!!! the baskets from hales has been a hit the past two years
Awesome....great flavor and so juicy!!!!
On 2 orders 2 pieces of fruit were bad on arrival--other than that, no complaints
The honeybells are delicious and juicy, but impossible to peel. the brochure called them easy to peel.
I have always been very satisfied with your quality of product and the professionalism of your staff
Item was delivered on time and fruit tasted good
I sent the honeybell oranges as a gift. my sister enjoyed them and said they were very good.
Thank you for replacing the over ripe fruit, everyone appreciated and enjoyed the fruit.
Every recipient of the oranges and grapefruit we sent as christmas gifts was extremely pleased with the quality and taste of the fruit.
Great product and fast service
Have sent fruit every year for over 15 years and always good.
These are the absolute best grapefruit this year. enjoying every one!!
I live in florida and i use hale's products for my friends up north at christmas. they all say it is the highlight of the season when their shipment arrives.
Give this fruit as gifts to northerners! always much appreciate, thanks hae
I order oranges and peaches for holiday gifts every year. they are always delicious. my favorite is the peaches which are a great treat for june.
The fruit is delicious! i'll definitely order again.
We order fruit every year for years and have never been disappointed. if there was ever an issue, hale's would replace what was shipped with no questions asked. we will continue using hale for all of our out of town needs.
My orders have always been exactly as expected. the grapefruit is always delicious. my only wish is that it had a longer harvesting season. but, i don't want stored fruit ! thank you for your shipping cartons. i've never had a damaged fruit.
Not as good this year as previous years. i had 4 different orders and had a couple bad ones every time. still my favorite oranges though....thanks
Always enjoy ordering from hale. my friends on my gift list love their gifts. however there was one minor problem this year. ordered a package for chuck norman at his home address. at the same time, his son, also named chuck moved and changed his address with the post office. well, you guessed it! the son got the fruit and not him. and being a good son, he ate a portion of the fruit. i guess he was testing it to make sure it was safe. really not an issue on your end, but rather the postal service. regardless, this will not in any way keep me from ordering from you again. have a good day. sincerely, john zatorski
These oranges are delicious, very sweet and juicy. practically no acidity taste.
Your citrus was enjoyed immensely be the gift recipients this past holiday!
My family said that their fruit was wonderful. thanks.
Very pleased with your services and family always love your fruits. thanks
The fruitcake assortment i sent my family for the holidays was outstanding!
Great oranges! thanks for replacing the ones nipped by a freeze while in transit. loved the mini honeybells! omg, never tasted anything so sweet and juicy!
These oranges are delicious, very sweet and juicy. practically no acidity taste.
Last order was scruffy and 1 was rotten.
I have received two shipments of honeybells & they are delicious. the only issue is that 4 of them in the second shipment had to be thrown away because they had begun to rot.
Well, i've had nothing bit great reports from all of thr honeybell recipients. o've never been disappointed. thank you, hale groves.
Beautiful fruit this year.
