CouponFruitflowers began back in 1984 as Incredibly Edible Delites. They created the Floral Fruit design crafted with fresh melons, grapes, strawberries and pineapple in home kitchens when their children were very young. Now those same children form the second generation of the Fruitflowers brand. Sculpted fresh fruit is just the perfect gift for any and every occasion, from birth to birthdays, congratulations to condolences. It is a delicious, healthy gift that delights one or many.
