If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, then 500 apples a day grants the power to telekinetically direct doctors through real-life episodes of General Hospital. Discover untapped potential with today's Groupon: for $44, you get a Harvest Flyer fruit box from The FruitGuys (a $74 value, including shipping). Phoenix-area delivery days are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
The FruitGuys ships fresh fruits from regional, sustainable farms to homes, offices, schools, and other citrus-starved arenas. The Harvest Flyer mix stacks up 50 pieces of fruit, changing its roster weekly depending on the season and Mother Nature's mood swings. Previous cast members have included mandarin and blood oranges, fuji and granny smith apples, blueberries, and bananas. Each vitamin-transporting vessel is specially selected, inspected, and hand-packed before arriving in the nutrient-craving hands of recipients mere days after being wrested from its leafy home. An informative newsletter accompanies each shipment, delivering helpful recipes, specifics on upcoming food events, and gossip on behind-the-scenes tensions between honey tangerines and navel oranges. In addition to supporting malnourished digestive systems, The FruitGuys supports numerous farm-related charities and food banks.
