How many pieces of fruit are in a fruit box?
Our classic fruit box contains 50 pieces of fruit including apples, pears, satsumas, kiwi, bananas, plums, oranges and grapes. We also provide a mini fruit box which contains 30 pieces of fruit. We can however, provide bespoke fruit boxes containing larger amounts of fruit.

Yes, Edgars Fruit realise that not everybody is the same or likes the same types of fruit. Our Classic Fruit Box contains a set amount and type of fruit which varies with the season. However, we offer a bespoke fruit box with you can tailor to meet you own needs including soft fruits, exotic fruits and dried fruit.
How often will my fruit box be delivered?
We can deliver your fruit for the office, any day of the working week and as often as you like. Some customers only have one fruit box a week, others have several fruit boxes on a daily basis. Edgars Fruit are a flexible provider of fresh fruit for the office and will develop a cost effective package that ensures that we meets the demands of your workforce.
Is there a minimum order?
Our minimum order is 1 fruit box per delivery, whether this is one box per fortnight, or 1 box per day.
Am I tied into a contract?
No. At Edgars Fruit, we only ask that you give a minimum notice of 1 week to stop your fruit delivieries to the office. You can then start up again at any time.
What happens if we run out of fruit?
We usually advise that you take advantange of our fruit box trial over a 4 week period. This means that over the period of the trial, we can work with you to ensure that you have a sufficient supply of fresh fruit for your staff. If you have not ordered enough pieces in your fruit box to last the week, we can easily increase the quantity or frequency of fruit boxes delivered. Likewise, if you have ordered too much, we can reduce the amount or frequency of delivery.
Do I have to repeatedly order my fruit box?
No, your fruit box will automatically be delivered at the frequency agreed with our sales team, containing the fruit that you have requested.
What happens if I want to change my fruit order?
Fancy some strawberries with your fruit box this week? Need extra fruit for a meeting? Want to swap some oranges for bananas? No problem, just contact our fruit sales team and they will make any adjustments to your existing fruit box order. We do ask that you give us 72 hours notice for any amendments.
Do you provide Vegetables too?
Yes. We provide vegetable boxes or salad boxes, or can combine these with fruit to make a fruit and vegetable/salad box. Many offices provide their staff with healthy option snacks which not only include fruit but also crunchy vegetables and salads. Please ask one of our Fruit sales team for full details.
Are your Fruit and Vegetables Organic?
All our fruit and vegetables for our fruit boxes are delivered fresh from the fruit market. Dependent upon the season, we try where possible to source from local producers including Sussex farmed strawberries & raspberries, and Kent apples and pears. We do not supply Organic fruit & Vegetables.
