Pittman & Davis

PITTMAN & DAVIS

Cost:

From $64.99 (three months) to $329.99 (twelve months)

Pittman & Davis has been in the fruit business for the better part of a century, specializing in the Ruby Red grapefruit that grows best in the Texas Rio Grande Valley. Their fruit clubs include produce from partner orchards in Florida, as well as apple and pear orchards in the Northwest.

Attention to detail

Whether shipping from their own orchards or their grower friends in other locations, Pittman & Davis makes sure that each fruit is individually hand-wrapped and packaged within hours of being picked, to deliver the ultimate in flavor and freshness.

2 fruit clubs

Although it looks like this company has a lot of fruit clubs to choose from, they really only have two: Harvest-A-Month and Harvest-A-Month Lite. Each of these memberships comes in 3, 6, or 12-month lengths, all of which include free shipping. The difference between the two fruit clubs basically comes down to quantity: 12-16 pieces of fruit (not pounds) in the regular package and 6-8 pieces in the Lite box. You may see some exceptions, like the two personal watermelons that typically come in the July delivery.

Odd selection

We were a little surprised to see ten pounds of Vidalia onions as the "fruit" selection for June - with so many other fruits in season that month, it's a strange way to go. Plus, that was only the case for the larger of the two clubs; the "Lite" club offers Tommy Atkins mangos in June. That left us scratching our heads. You can't request substitutions with Pittman & Davis, but you can call their customer service department and ask to skip a particular month. (June might be one to consider skipping, unless you love onions!)

Both affordable and expensive

When you look at the price of the fruit memberships, they seem pretty affordable: from $64.99 to $274.99 for the Lite clubs and from $87.99 to $329.99 for the larger Harvest-A-Month subscription. However, when you look at the average monthly cost and then consider how little fruit you get, it starts to seem like an expensive choice. For example, if you're only getting 4-6 pieces of fruit for $21.66 (the 3-month Lite fruit club), that's probably going to feel spendy for most customers.

Thousands of positive reviews

On a more positive note, Pittman & Davis gets good reviews from people who have tried their fruit clubs and other products. Over more than 8,000 ratings, the company earned an average of more than 4 out of 5 stars. We would have liked to see customer comments specifically on each of the different fruit club options, rather than a blank page where we could be the first to review them. But, their good reputation elsewhere, combined with an "A+" from the Better Business Bureau, are reason enough to trust Pittman & Davis overall.

Replacement or refund

And, as with most providers of fruit clubs, this company promises that you'll love every shipment of fruit; if not, you'll get a free replacement or a refund of your purchase price. That's fairly common, and we're glad to see that Pittman & Davis holds to that standard too.

Lower value

So, while you'll get delicious fruit and great customer service with either of the two fruit clubs offered by Pittman & Davis, you're going to spend a lot more for it. For the same cost, you could either get much more fruit in each delivery or access more gourmet-level fruit varieties and/or certified organic produce. This isn't a bad choice for a fruit club membership, but it offers a lower value than the other subscription plans in our rankings.

Continued from above

Naturally, some fruits ship better than others - so you're more likely to see pears, oranges, grapefruit, apples and other varieties with a thick skin or peel, rather than softer choices that may spoil quickly (like strawberries and grapes). But, you might be surprised to find fruit clubs that feature flavorful peaches and nectarines too. Some of these subscription plans let you choose organic fruits, add on gourmet cheese and nuts, or even throw in some candy or other treats as well.

Not all fruit clubs are created equal, however. Some offer produce that comes directly from their own orchards and farms, while others merely act as a middleman to deliver fruit from a variety of sources. How can you tell which fruit club is the right choice?

Here are several criteria to keep in mind as you browse the many fruit memberships on the market:

  • Variety. Does the fruit club offer you a range of choices? Can you get several types of fruit? Are there options that include extras that go beyond fruit, if desired?
  • Plans. Is there a plan that meets your budget and your desired length? Most clubs range from three to twelve months, but what if you want something weekly or quarterly?
  • Value. How much fruit is in each delivery? Is shipping included or will you pay extra? Are you getting your money's worth with the fruit club?
  • Reputation. What do other customers say about their experience with the fruit club? Does fruit consistently arrive in good condition - and, if not, is there a solid satisfaction guarantee in place? Is it easy to get help from customer service if there's a problem?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best fruit clubs available today. We hope this information helps you choose the freshest, most delicious fruit subscription box for your next gift-giving occasion - or for yourself!
