First time ordering maesil

I was very pleased with the quality of the maesil I received.

better than expected!

Maesil fruits are overall in very good condition. It's almost impossible to find fresh maesil fruit in the States. I'm very happy to find Maesilhood.
Would have been much better with shipping updates.

The quality is superb!

Very Good Quality Plums

Ordered the large box this year and the quality of the plums were great! There were only about 5 or 6 plums out of the whole bunch that couldn't be used. I would definitely order again next year!

Not bad

I was expecting more green fruit than I got for the purpose that I needed them for. Maybe an option for that would help. I’ve purchased green walnuts and they let you choose smaller or larger depending on what you want them for.

More were bruised than I expected but I think that’s due to usps using the box as a soccer ball.
