Mailing some of our Heirloom Tomatoes to some clients in Northern British Columbia, Canada. We carefully package them with an shock level layer on bottom and top of tomatoes. We make a scrunched up newspaper level between the bottom and a cardboard panel that the tomatoes sit on and do the same for the top before we close the box. We put in partition cardboard walls and then pack every nook and cranny with waxed tissue paper in between all the tomatoes with a layer also on the top of them. As they have to be mailed by Post and are parishable
and can't be insured, our clients assume the risk. However, we have had such success in mailing them this way without incident so far. We have mailed 4 packages this way so far so good, with clients really wanting our tomatoes abroad. We make sure that the tomatoes are on the cusp of turning color to ensure fresheness for clients.
