Healthy Gifting: 4 Tips on how to make or choose a great Fruit Basket

Fruit baskets and bowls are beautifully versatile: they are some of the only things that can serve as an item of decor and also as a tasty snack for your guests when they get hungry. Having an artfully arranged fruit basket on your table is a welcoming, hospitable touch, and can also add a touch of color and freshness to the home as the days grow shorter. Here are some tips to help you choose or make that perfect gift of fruits for your loved ones!


One of the most important tips for making a fruit basket is to buy fruit that is still firm, but ripe. Purchasing fruit when it is already ripe can lead to molding when the person finally receives the basket. Many fruits go bad once they reach the point of being ripe, others can last 3-5 days on average.

Be sure to keep in mind, the length of time from purchasing the fruit to giving the basket away.

At Atlas we choose fruits and assemble them on the day of delivery, we ensure that fruits will reach their peak within the 3-5 day range. so you can rest assured that we have it covered!


Are you getting a fruit platter or basket for a family or just an individual. Do they avoid certain fruits? These are all things to consider when preparing that perfect fruit basket. Consider globally loved fruits such as peaches and plums and avoid harsher-smelling ones like durians or jack fruit. Fruits with peels and which are seedless also tend to be big hits when buying for families or as a "get-well-soon" gift. catering for visitors and family members who will likely eat them.


Nibbles can be nice! Look beyond just large fruits and baskets, look at making fruit platters instead, with cheese and crackers!

Pair your fruits with amazing cheeses and or small crackers and berries to make an all-day fruit grazing platter. This is much more convenient than a traditional fruit platter where fruits need to be prepared and cut up before being enjoyed.
