To order Pears or Nectarines, please contact me no later than 6pm Tuesday, August 28, for delivery on Thursday, August 30. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. No orders are taken through the Co-op.
Your email should have "Pears" or "Nectarines" in the subject line and contain the following information:
* Your name, email address, phone number,
* How many cases of Bartlett Pears, or
* How many boxes of Sunglow Nectarines you want.
Once you have sent your request and are on the list, your order is committed. I'll send a reminder email to everyone on the list when orders are closed. If you find that you must cancel, please do so before the Tuesday deadline so Maria doesn't pack your fruit.
If you want to split a case with someone, please ask among your friends and neighbors and arrange things yourselves. If you can't find someone, I can try to match people up if I receive another request to share, but all the arrangements after that should be between the people sharing.
Thursday shortly before noon on August 30, your pears and nectarines will be ready for pickup. Please come for your fruit that day before the store closes at 7 pm; as you know we don't have cold storage. Pears keep best if they are stored in a cool place; nectarines should be kept in the refrigerator and a few taken out as you need them to ripen in a bowl for a day or two.
3. PAYMENT AND CHECKOUT:
Payments (cash or check only) will be taken at the cash register when you pick up your fruit. The price is $32 per 24# case for pears, $44 per 20# case for nectarines. The cashier will mark your name off the list of orders at the check stand when you pay and take your fruit.
