The Freeze-dried organic cherries and blueberries were extremely delicious! They are the best choices when the fresh fruits are not available. Especially the cherry season is so short! The Freeze-dry is the only way to keep all nutritions except vitamin C.
The only problem is once the bag is open, your fingers just can’t stop until the bag is empty ;) —and they are expensive. Will definitely buy again.
Thank you, Yadi! You've been a pleasure to get to know and we can't wait for fresh cherry and blueberry season to arrive next year so you can experience that fresh fruit you've been waiting for! The freeze-dried is a great option for off-season fruits. :) It's also hard for us not to finish a whole bag once we open them - too delicious!
Ordered the sampler pack and was really happy about the quality and taste of the dried fruit. The honeycrisp apples were my favorite. Packaging was beautiful, order came quick, will definitely order again. Good option for sending a gift too.
Thank you for the kind words! We appreciate your local support and are so happy you enjoyed the Freeze-Dried Sampler. The Honeycrisp also seem to be a staff favorite. :) Remember when you purchase next time that you will automatically save 10% if you subscribe for recurring orders!
We have had many orders of amazing apples from Chelan Beauty, so we expected the same quality from the Rainier Cherries. They were molding and bruised.. there were less than 20% of the cherries that we ate. The rest went in the trash. I was also irritated to see non-organic Rainier Cherries in my local store for $11 per pound. We paid $70 for 1 lbs of rotten organic cherries.. I’m thinking aside from the apples, we will probably only purchase frozen fruits online now.
Thank you for reaching out to us about the Rainiers, Nathan. We appreciate the photos and feedback that you provided to us and again, we completely understand the disappointment you must've had when receiving your order, as this is not the kind of experience we want our customers to have when receiving Chelan Beauty fruit. We thank you for understanding the challenges we face when shipping a perishable product, but please know we are continually trying to find ways to improve. Giving our customers an enjoyable experience and opportunity to connect with their food sources is one of our top priorities, so we truly appreciate your support and understanding in this matter, and for working with us to find a way to correct your experience. We hope to do business with you again in the future!
With the weather we have had, cherries have been hard to find in stores or farmers markets. Just as well since these cherries are large, sweet, and delicious without the bruising that accompanies most other cherries. Definitely a worthwhile treat!
Thank you Valorie, we have always appreciated your ongoing support over the years. :) Due to our high elevation, we were very fortunate that our hail storms did not damage our cherries this season! In fact, I think they taste even better this year than last! 'Tis the season!
This is the hottest day of the year, and the blueberries on top of the ice packs in the cooler were still cold. Chilling in the refrigerator now, then will freeze for wonderfulness in the winter!
Thank you, Mary! We have put a lot of thought and testing into both the packaging and the shipping to ensure our fruit arrives in as perfect condition as possible, so we are thrilled to hear your berries arrived chilled and ready to eat! They are truly a treat this time of year!
Well quite frankly I didn’t have very much hope. I was expecting my apples to be half baked when they arrived… literally. I imagined kind of warm and mushy. The air temp in VA was 90+ degrees. What was the temp in all those trucks?
The package arrived. Despite a broken ankle, I hobbled out to get the box. Opened the box right there in the driveway. Oh my … a bag, with handles? Unzipped the top… grabbed one and took a bite. Ok, it was a bit warm… but crisp and delicious!
Well done, everyone. Very well done indeed!
Thank you for your kinds words and honest feedback, Caroline! Our small team has been busy testing and researching our packaging and shipping procedures to ensure high quality upon delivery! We are very pleased the apples arrived in nearly perfect condition! It is true that we are now in July - we suspect that we may run out of apples in the coming weeks/month, but we will be transitioning to our fresh cherries and blueberries here in a few weeks so we will have other delicious fruit available until apples return in the fall! You'll have to give them a try!
Thank you for choosing Chelan Beauty to gift organic apples. We appreciate you sharing your review with us!
The cripp and the pinova was the best. The honey crisp was tops also. Beautiful "cold" bag that they were in. Shipped very well, no damage.
Thank you for your review! We are so happy to be able to get you fresh and delicious apples all the way to Florida! We appreciate your support of our small family farm. :)
These are - without a doubt - the most delicious Honey Crisp apples I have ever eaten! Flavor, texture, and juiciness were sublime. Will definitely order again!
It makes us so happy that you are enjoying Chelan Beauty's Organic Honeycrisp Apples! They most certainly are a farm favorite. Thank you for sharing your wonderful review with us, Sherri, and we thank you for your support. :)
Thank you for sharing direct your organic Honeycrisp apples! I look forward to receiving them each time! Fantastic flavor, juicy and crisp!
Our small family farm thanks you for your kind review, Andra! It makes us so happy to be able to offer our fresh organic apples from Chelan directly to your door in Texas. And thank you for subscribing - we really appreciate your support! Cherries and blueberries will also coming soon so keep an eye out!
Granny Smith apples always remind me of holiday pies baking in the oven. I was not able to find these organic apples locally so I tried my luck on line. Glad I found Chelan Beauty. The apples are large and crisp and are delivered in a nice
zippered, insulated tote. I will definitely order again.
The apples come in perfect condition, no bruising. They are sweet crunchy and the convenience of the delivery is great. Highly recommend.
Chelan's apples are so crisp and tart, just how I like them. Delivery is quick and the folks are so friendly. Try them - you won't be sorry!
We sent a Chelan Beauty Box to a grieving family in support of passing of a loved one. The family was uplifted and appreciative of the gift and shared the delightful fruit. You have given a great deal of thought into your packaging. Thanks for your quality work.
In December my daughter Marilyn as a Christmas gift, sent Chelan Beauty Apples to us at 5758 South Park Blvd Parma Oh 44134. The chela Beauty apples arrived in good shape and were delicious!
So a few weeks ago my son Walter Masloski who lives at the same address ordered another box of Chelan Beauty Apples.
They arrived yesterday UPS truck completely frozen!🥶
They must have been shipped by train because it took a long time for them to get to Ohio.
I could not call you because you do not have a phone number listed for us to tell you our order, in spite of the Greencellfoam packing arrived frozen!
I feel bad because my son did not get what he ordered! Fresh edible apples! He Evan tipped the farmer!
Do you offer refunds?
I thought apples would have been shipped on a plane, a train had to go through the frozen Midwest states to get to Ohio!
Lesson learned for everyone! Don’t order apples in January or wait until night time temperatures are above freezing!
Good morning, Mary Ellen. We're so sorry that your sampler box arrived frozen. Please know that the weather we're experiencing is not normal. As you could tell with the first order, we usually have no problems shipping our apples across the country when the shipping times are accurate. 9-10 days en route = unhappy apples. Did you happen to purchase the Route Insurance when checking out? If so, that is one way we issue refunds, since weather and shipping delays cause our product to be damaged. If you did not purchase Route Protection, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can fix this for you. We have a phone number up at the top of our website, but you may have missed it. Thank you for letting us know, as we will add our contact info in some more areas on the website to make more quickly visible! :)
I sent a box of apples as a gift to my nephew and his family. They raved about the flavor and quality of these honey crisp apples!
Perfect gift for someone who has everything! Apples arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Customer Service was the best, will definitely order again!
This was our first order of Chelan Beauty honeycrisps and we bought about 30 12-packs to send to clients for Christmas.
We are so happy with these apples, we could not be more pleased!! Everyone has thanked us profusely and given the apples rave reviews. These apples are the BEST - perfectly fresh and crispy and oh so fragrant!! They were beautifully and carefully packaged. We plan to order these next year and indefinitely for our clients. :)
I ordered for four families and they all appreciated the apples & said that they were delicious. They also commented about careful packaging & that apples were shipped in coolers. I was able to sample the apples & they were delicious! The apples shipped & arrived quickly!
