FRUIT SHARE for Long Island  
1 bag mixed Red & Golden Delicious Apples & Bosc Pears*

FRUIT SHARE for Queens 
1 bag mixed Red & Golden Delicious Apples & Bosc Pears*


Important Note about Bosc pears!!!!  Bosc pears are ripe when they turn an even brown color. They are still firm when ripe!  Refrigerate immediately when ripe. If left to soften, they will be rotten when you cut them open, so be careful!

Be sure to remove fruit from plastic bags immediately when you get them home.  They can ripen out on the counter or in a paper bag.  Store ripe fruit in the fridge.
