Preparing to welcome 2022?
Families traditionally prepare 12 round fruits on the dining table to ring in the new year for good luck. Round fruits represent coins and money—and they are usually 12 pieces to represent each month of the year. People have long believed that eating them would bring them good fortune, prosperity, and abundance all year long.
If you’re still on the hunt for some “lucky” fruits to have with the entire family, look no further as we’ve compiled some online stores you can count on for delivery.
Fruits and More has fruits you can buy in sets. Its small boxes range from P700 to P1,300, but there are also big ones that include more variety priced between P1,500 to P3,000. The best part? You can even customize your own for P2,000 and up.
Fruity Basket also has curated holiday packages. For only P500 (Package 4C), you can have three Fuji apples, two pears, two oranges, and two kiwi. There are also bigger options that are still affordable like the Package 1C (P1,500) that has 1 kg crimson grapes, three Fuji apples, two pears, two oranges, one lemon, one pack of strawberries, and one pack of blueberries as well as the Package 2C (P1,000) that comes with 1 kg crimson grapes, three Fuji apples, three pears, three oranges, one kiwi, one tub of peeled pomelo, and one pineapple.
What’s nice about C&F Fruits is its packages already come with 12 fruits each. Check out its Glitter Package (P1,000), Shimmer Package (P2,000), and Sparkle Package (P3,000). While the availability of fruits in the sets may vary, there’s no need to worry as they can just include other fruits of the same value in your order.
