HALE GROVES

Hale Groves are located in the heart of Vero Beach, Florida also known as the Indian River citrus belt. The company started in 1946 by Steve Hale Jr and mainly specializes in citrus fruits such as tangelos, grape fruit, tangerines, clemintines and several varieties of oranges.

Hale Groves offers three different fruit club options. You may choose from there All Season club which includes 1.5-7.5 lbs of fruit delivered each month from a predetermined menu of one fruit. Fruit deliveries include oranges, honeybells, strawberries, peaches and more. The second fruit club is called the Citrus Lovers club which consists of grape fruits and oranges. The final fruit club option is called the Tropical Fruit club where fruit is delivered from a predetermined menu. Selections include tangelos, oranges, mangos, pineapple and more.

Each club has it's own frequency and duration rules. The All Season and Tropical Fruit are pretty straightforward with an 3, 6, 9 or 12 month option. Whereas the Citrus Lovers comes in a 3,4,5 or 8 month membership with a confusing selection of grapefruit or oranges. It was confusing because elsewhere the plan description included a preset list of fruit deliveries.

Unfortunately Hale Groves charges for shipping which raises the prices over the competition. They also have limited options when it comes to flexibility and when you want fruit delivered over many of the clubs.

Despite the confusing check out process with some of clubs we liked the shipping charges and limited club options even less. For those in search of an affordable fruit club membership we recommend you shop higher on our list of reviewed companies.

Fruit Clubs

To help you find the Best Fruit Clubs, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of The Fruit Company and Hale Groves.

Delicious, high quality fruit is not readily available in most grocery stores in the United States. That's just one reason why a fruit club membership is a great gift idea for anyone that enjoys the great taste of fruit. Receiving delicious, fresh fruit that is juicy and sweet, month after month, is an excellent way to send your love or appreciation.

But where do you find wonderful fruit to send as a gift each month? Several online companies exist that specialize in fruit deliveries and monthly gift orders that are sent on time and as promised.

Many of these companies use only the freshest fruit and some even deliver straight from the orchard. However, some fruit clubs have less involvement with the growth and preparation of the fruit they deliver.

When looking for the best fruit club provider, you need to consider a number of important factors before making your decision. These include:

  • Club Flexibility. Will you be able to choose the fruit club length and frequency that meets your needs and fits into your budget?
  • Cost. How does the fruit club cost compare with other fruit clubs? How much fruit is included in each delivery?
  • Shipping. What shipping charges are included if any with each fruit club you consider?
