I have lived in Ft Myers for 20 years and have visited Sun Harvest many times, especially when people are in town as it's a go to spot. I don't purchase much from here as I prefer organic, however I wanted to send a pastor in Minnesota a box of grapefruits. I went to the store in November, a week or so before Thanksgiving. At that time they had the tables set up for the crowds that were to come around the holidays. A nice older lady helped me complete the form and I may add that I went into the store to insure everything was done correctly and to get their advice on the best grapefruits....white or red. It all went very quickly. She advised me that I should have my shipment go out after Thanksgiving as to not have the grapefruits sitting around a couple of days as the mail would be held up. I was fine with that. She advised me they would go out Dec 2 and that I would get an email as confirmation. Dec 2 came and went and I realized around Dec 5 that I never got that email. I called the 800 number because by this time, I was back in my MN home. A gentleman said my order never went because there was a problem first that he couldn't find my order form then that my credit card info was never given. What??? It was written right on the form! He apologized up and down and said the grapefruits would go out asap. I was very upset. Two days later I still didn't get the email and called again. The next person (another guy) told me it had just gone out that day, so the promise of within 24 hours was a lie. Still never got the email to this day. I wrote an email and complained to the manager, but she acted as though I was the one at fault and the promise date of Dec 2 was never told to me. Meanwhile, when I came back to my Ft Myers home, a letter was in my mailbox that my order never was delivered due to the form not having my credit card info. I know the box went because the second gentleman I talked to gave me the tracking info. After all these years, they clearly don't have a decent system when it comes to the shipment of fruit. That was my first and will be my very last shipment I ever do and will tell others.

This is a must when in the area! We had friends recommend the juices here, so we made sure to stop in for a visit. The juice, WOW is it good. Our crew thought the lemonade and the strawberry orange were the best! The ice creams are great and only $3 each, which beat any price we saw in town!! The kids got muffins for breakfast the next day, which were only $1.99 for a huge muffin! They said it was at least three times better than the McDonald's muffins that they had several days before. Friendly staff, clean store, great selection of souvenirs. Highly recommend!!

You will find the fruit sold her very good. They have a juice and fresh fruit sampling area, so you can easily decide which fruits and juices are best for you.

They also have a large area with gift shop items. If this isn't your sort of thing, you can easily skip it.

There are frequently long lines to check out, but don't let that discourage you. They are very efficient at working people through the checkout process. A little time in line is good to decide which smoothie or ice cream treat is best for you.

If you are like me, and you bought a significant amount of fruit and other items for shipment home (my airline would not allow some of the items I purchased), I suggest going to a different place to ship them home. I had an outstanding experience at Sun Harvest Citrus UNTIL I entered the postal unit located in the back of the store. There I encountered a very rude lady that made me wish I had gone elsewhere for my purchases. Do yourself a favor and ship items purchased at a different postal facility.

Love the juices. Doors are cleary marked that you had to wear masks and social distance. Neither was happening. It was pretty busy when I was there and no way to social distance. Numerous people did not wear masks and the employees let it happen. I couldn't wait to come for the juice. I ended up leaving without anything because of the conditions.

We take the health and safety of our customers and employees very seriously. We are actually very COVID-19 compliant and follow all CDC Guidelines. A mandatory mask requirement is posted at each entrance along with a sanitation station. We have social distance markers placed on the floor in our check out area. Our juice sample station, counters, and shopping carts are routinely wiped down. All of our employees wear a mask and are not allowed to work without one. Like any other store, yes, some customers choose to not wear a mask when they enter the store but that is the minority. We are happy to say that almost all of our customers respect our policy and wear a mask - again, there will always be exceptions. Thank you, Sun Harvest Citrus

No social distancing, very slow, inefficient check out line, no organization of keeping the line moving to open registers. The computers took forever to ring up, staff was very frustrated and not very friendly. The juice is delicious and we would have left, but our granddaughter and friend wanted juice and a cone.

No matter how busy we are, we do not accept any form of rudeness from our employees. We will address your comment at our next staff meeting. We hope your granddaughter and friend enjoyed their juice and ice cream. Thank you, Sun Harvest Citrus

First off, our family has been visiting Fort Myers for years. We have visited this place many times in the past
Customer service has declined. They have multiple “supervisors” on site which means nothing.
Cashiers are rude, they seem miserable working there. When I pointed out the fact that one particular cashier was being rude, I was greeted by a “supervisor” who apologized for the experience. Then, as we were waiting for our ice cream cones, another “supervisor” came and yelled “get out of here”, stating we were causing a scene. We were just standing there waiting for our ice cream, we were done talking about the rude cashier. He was a tall white male who said, “we’re all supervisors, get out of the store”.
Product qualities have declined and people working there must be mistreated daily because they are miserable

I took some friends to this place to try some of their free juices and after several samples we decided to get us some desserts. They have the best Keylime ice cream I have ever eaten. The blueberry muffins are outstanding. I really haven’t found anything bad here.

Please sell fruit worthy of your reputation. We received some oranges as a gift and I am reluctant to tell the gift giver of the disappointment. I am from FL and I know oranges. These were a sad excuse for an orange. I was able to use about 2/3 of each one. They were dried up as seen in the photo. The parts I was able to salvage had no flavor and absolutely no sweetness. I know the citrus industry in FL is taking a hit but I feel Sunharvest needs to just not offer an orange of such poor quality.

We too have been going to Sun Harvest for almost 30 years. While they still do a nice job there have been some substantial changes that are really negatively impacting us and since I see other comments, others as well. First the key lime pies changed, then the coconut patties vendor changed(don’t buy them. You can get them for half the price at TJ Maxx, etc), and NOW THE ICE CREAM. Stop lying to us. You changed the recipe and it tastes AWFUL. I used to get ice cream every time. Now I am going to LoveBoat. Disappointed

Sorry to hear of your disappointment J, but allow me to clear a few things up: Our Key Lime Pies have not changed at all. They are still made by the same great local kitchen they always have and will continue to as well. Coconut patties as well have not changed, and are from the same Florida company that originated them in the 80's and will continue to as well. As for our legendary soft serve ice cream: Yes we have changed it. No we never said we didn't. When you make a holistic change to improve an icon like a cool treat on a hot Florida day I assure you it was done for a reason, and that reason was YOU the customers. Our decision to steer away from American industry standards and eliminate artificial flavors, and coloring was done with the customer in mind. Our new flavors are flavored by the actual name on the machine (ie: Orange is flavored by oranges, and key lime is flavored by key limes, ect) and our base is 100% whole Florida milk thus eliminating any and all fillers and/or preservatives providing a "clean label" experience. Yes, change IS change, but better IS better, and we hope you give it another try. I suggest the current seasonal favorite Pink Grapefruit. It's amazing.

So disappointed! The ice cream is different, poor quality and price went up for cone from $3 to $4. Juice now is $9.99 for a half gallon. Price increase is somewhat expected but decrease in quality is not. Not sure I’ll be a customer any longer. 😢

So sorry to hear you don't like the clean label soft serve. Quality is not in question though as 100% pure Florida whole milk, and flavors that are flavored by the actual product ie: Orange is flavored by Oranges make our soft serve a holistically clean label and healthier treat. We do recognize change IS change regardless, but the orders don't lie and over all we are moving more soft serve than ever. Our last increase on the price of juice was nearly a year ago, and based solely on the increase of materials to produce it. We still make the freshest (watch us squeeze it) juice in all of south Florida and our commitment to offer a non-corporate homogenized product remains. Small businesses unfortunately do not get the discounts large corporations get meaning we pay more to produce the products our customers love, and sometimes we indeed do have to raise those prices based on local, national, and global inflation.
