    Had it delivered once, learned from that, and now purchase it while shopping there. Produce is fine, good, but seems to go bad quicker than at home. Maybe its the weather, maybe delivery time to the grocery store. Though, I will say the bag of limes we'ver purchased every trip for drinks stayed fine for 2 weeks ! All in all , its fine.

    bagged salad (DOLE) has been not great.
    the few times we bought it, it conked out before the expiration date, so now we do not buy bagged salad

    bananas has been a crapshoot. sometimes perfect, sometimes overripe overnight

    lemons/limes/citrus we have had good luck
    (lemons expensive....but then again i am used to picking them a tree and not spending $1.50 each)

    grape tomatoes we have had good luck.

    apples, we have had good luck, they are expensive but ok (GALA apples)
    about $9 a bag of about 3 lb.

    so yup, generally good.

    Fruit is expensive and not what we're used to back home. As Andrea said, bananas seem to ripen very quickly there. We usually do well with mangoes. I just stand there looking stupid until a native comes over and helps me pick out the good ones.

    The pineapple and watermelon already cut are great!!!The pineapple at Lings goes really fast. I always ask the help to cut me some more and they are very willing. We enjoy it so much and buy it often.

    Here's a thought....we used to bring those bag thingies that you put your fruit in to help keep them fresher longer....Some TV thing that I got at bed bath and beyond. I will have to find them for our upcoming trip but i do remember them working...
