We had more tangerines, but we picked these earlier and I forgot to take the pics(like another grapefruit size box full).

I've been giving many of it away to my co-workers and other office people in my building I work at.  Grapefruit came out sweet this year.  They look pinkish orange because the tree's are next to each other, and I think have been cross pollenating.

You could mail me some, if you think they would keep?

I could send you a reimbursement check for however much it cost to ship.

I eat the hell out of some fruits.

I'd have to find out what the best shipping method (USPS or UPS whatever) and it would be heavy.  We don't use pesticides on our trees.

I like the greener ones, since they still have some bitterness to them.

Roommate wants to plant another tangerine tree in the back yard, but I told him he should plant a lemon and lime one on the other side of the yard.

If you feel like it, I would love to have some freshly grown organic fruit. Not a huge amount. Like a small box full.

I mailed a heavy appliance -toaster oven- to my mom for her birthday. It only cost me $13 to ship, and it was pretty weighty.

If it's too much trouble, don't worry about it, but I would happily reimburse the mailing cost.

I don't ship out boxes enough to know who gives better prices, but I wouldn't have a problem sending some over.  If it isn't too expensive, I won't charge you for the shipping (It isn't a big deal).

You can probably just pack some in a shipping box with some newspaper or something soft, so they they're packed sort of tight, then make sure it's taped up good and take it to the regular post office. That's what I did with the toaster oven; the guy at the post office just went over what it cost to get different types of mailing, and I just sent it at whatever the cheapest rate was, and it was fine when it got there. You could probably do that with some well-packed, slightly unripe fruits. By the time they got here, they would be about perfect to eat.

They are perfect to eat right now, I don't think the tangerines will make it though, they are soft.  But I can send the grapefruit.  Probably not till friday since that'll be my next day off.

There's a guy in LA who used to make hot sauce out of these. IDK if he still does. I'll have to look it up.
