Orders for Saturday store delivery should be placed before 3pm local (store) time. Sunday deliveries vary by location.

How long will the fruit last?
Our fruit arrangements are sold at the peak of freshness, so we recommend that you enjoy your gift right away.

Our chocolate dipped fruit is exceptionally fresh, and should be consumed immediately. If that’s not possible, you should keep the original packaging, refrigerate immediately upon receipt, and enjoy within 24 hours of receipt.
How much room do I have for my card message?
Your card message can be up to 300 characters long, including spaces, periods, symbols, etc.
How will my order be delivered?
Orders delivered through a local Edible Arrangements® store are hand-delivered in a refrigerated van. Orders that are shipped are delivered via UPS, and are specially packaged to ensure the perfect presentation and freshness on arrival.
I think I may have been charged twice. Can you help?
Absolutely. The first thing you should do is check to see if the charge you are seeing is actually a temporary hold, or pending transaction. If this is the case, you have not actually been charged.
Credit card transactions are authorized in two steps. In the first step, the payment gateway says “I want to charge $xx to card Y.” If the card has these funds available, the card company places a provisional hold on those $xx and responds OK back to the gateway. Along with that response, the card company sends the gateway some account information (such as the cardholder address). The gateway then performs the second part of the validation, checking this address against the billing address you supplied. If this match fails, the gateway tells both us and the card issuer. The funds that were placed under hold are never captured—you will not be charged.
However, it’s important to note that some card issuers release these held funds in a batch process, typically one that runs overnight. Because of this, you may see the held transaction appearing in your online credit card statement for a day or two. The time is takes to release your funds is dependent entirely on your bank or credit card company.
If you still have any questions about this, please give us a call at 1-877-363-7848.
I would like my order(s) to be delivered at a certain time. Do you offer timed deliveries?
We cannot guarantee delivery times, but we will do our best to accommodate the open hours of offices, schools and businesses. Any request for a specific delivery time cannot be honored. You should not include any such request or delivery instruction with your order, as it will not be taken into account for your delivery.
You can always Track Your Order
online any time, or contact Customer Service for tracking assistance at 1-877-DOFRUIT (1-877-363-7848).
Is it safe to use my credit card online?
Yes; we never send personal information, such as your credit card number, over the network in a way that is readable to anyone but us. We encrypt your information and send it over the Internet using SSL (secure socket layer) technology.
Is there sales tax on my order?
All Edible Arrangements® store orders (for pickup or delivery) are subject to applicable the taxes of the state/area in which the local store operates. Orders shipping via UPS are subject to 6.35% CT state sales tax
Is your chocolate gluten free?
All chocolate is gluten-free. However, our chocolate is manufactured in facilities that may manufacture gluten-based products.
None of your stores service the ZIP/postal code I entered, can you ship the arrangement?
Even if there’s no Edible Arrangements® store close enough to deliver locally, we’ve still got you (chocolate) covered! We offer shipment of our boxes of gourmet chocolate dipped fruit to many locations across the U.S. via UPS. Just enter the recipient’s ZIP code and the delivery date required in the entry fields on our website, and you will automatically be shown all service options (pickup/delivery/shipment) available in that area on that date. If we do not currently have a service available in your desired area, remember that we are constantly growing and expanding our Edible Arrangements® store locations!
What are your delivery policies?
For Residential deliveries, orders delivered via a local store are typically delivered from mid-morning to late evening (as late as 9pm during busy holidays). If the recipient is not available at the time of delivery, we may attempt to leave the gift with a neighbor. If the gift is left with a neighbor, or if no one is available to accept the gift, the recipient’s door will be tagged with clear instructions for retrieving the gift.
For Business deliveries, orders delivered via a local store are typically delivered from mid-morning morning until 5pm. Please be aware that we may leave the arrangement with the front desk or security. We are subject to the delivery restrictions of the business.
If your order shipped via UPS, the above delivery policies do not apply -- it will be delivered in accordance with our Shipment Policies
. For any order shipped via UPS, we recommend that you always send your gift on a date and to a location where someone will be available to retrieve the gift to ensure freshness. All shipped orders are subject to our Shipment Policies
and the policies of our shipping partner, UPS. In order to ensure delivery on the date required, we do not require signature proof for orders shipped via UPS. However, UPS may require a signature in certain circumstances at their sole discretion.
For Residential (home) deliveries shipped via UPS, the package will be left in a location deemed by the UPS driver to be secure. We recommend that you advise your recipient to expect a delivery. For Non-Residential (business, school, hospital, etc.) deliveries, packages typically arrive no later than the end of the business day. Packages sent to a business may be delivered as late as 6pm. Please be aware that the package may be left in a receiving area of the business such as the front desk, security, reception or mail room. UPS is subject to the delivery restrictions of the business. Again, we recommend that you advise your recipient to expect a delivery.

What if I didn’t see a confirmation page and/or didn’t receive an email confirmation?
If you didn’t receive any of the order confirmation messages, please call 1-877-DO-FRUIT (1-877-363-7848) as soon as possible. We recommend that you do not attempt to submit the order again to avoid placing duplicate orders.

Delivery from any of our local Edible Arrangements® stores is a $12 flat fee per delivery location.

We use 100% real chocolate in all of our dipped fruit arrangements and products! Our fruit is dipped in either gourmet semi-sweet or white chocolate.

Why can’t I order balloons in my area today?
Unfortunately, there is a nationwide shortage of helium, which may affect the availability of balloons in some areas at certain times. You can read more about the helium shortage here.
Why doesn’t my arrangement have exactly the same amount of fruit as the photo on the website?
Our arrangements may vary in the exact fruit counts due to produce size variations throughout the year. Each fruit has a peak season, which may result in larger than average produce during that time; similarly, there are seasons when the fruit may be smaller than average. To ensure that the arrangement’s design remains uniform, our Fruit Experts® work within specified fruit count ranges for each fruit type when building each arrangement. This gives our highly trained staff just enough flexibility to ensure that the arrangement is perfectly designed, no matter what size the fruit is at that point in the year.
Will I receive an order receipt/order confirmation?
Yes. First, if you place your order online, you will see a confirmation page after you process your order. We recommend that you print this confirmation page and keep it for your records.
We will also send you a confirmation email after you place your order, whether you order online or by phone. If you do not receive an order confirmation email, it is possible that your email address was entered incorrectly.
Keep in mind that there may be a delay in the delivery of your order confirmation email. Due to the high volume of orders we receive, particularly around busy holidays like Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, you may not receive your email confirmation immediately after placing your order.
Will you contact the recipient prior to delivering the product?
Local Edible Arrangements® stores may contact the recipient prior to delivery to ensure that they are home and/or available to accept their gift, but we do not typically contact recipients prior to attempting delivery. We recommend that you always send your gift on a date and to a location where someone will be available to receive the gift to ensure freshness, and advise your recipient to expect a delivery.
