About Our Fruit

Our specialty here at Rocky Mountain Fruit is Organic Fruit Gift Boxes. All our fruit is packed by Rogers Mesa Fruit in Hotchkiss, Colorado.  Rogers Mesa Fruit Company supplies sweet cherries, tree-ripened peaches, apples and pears from several small family farms located on the high mesas of western Colorado – including the areas around Paonia, Hotchkiss, Rogers Mesa and Cedaredge.  Abundant bright sunshine, rich soils, cold, clean mountain water and the careful, conscientious hands of the growers bring you the best in organic high country fruit.

Delicious Tree Ripened Fruit

Chilled, Sorted and Stored

Once the fruit comes in from the field, it is rapidly chilled to its ideal storage temperature.  We then carefully sort through the fruit and select the largest, prettiest fruits for shipping to our Web order customers.  We then ship the order to you as quickly as possible.  If we need to store the fruit for any length of time (for shipments past our last picking date, for example), we pack the fruit into a controlled environment cooler.

Organically Grown
