Rochester Gift Baskets

Many of our Rochester gift baskets pay tribute to an area known for producing stunning flowers, fruit trees and plants, as well as massive amounts of flour! Currently nicknamed the Flower City and previously referred to as the Flour City, Rochester has inspired several of our gift baskets containing both baked goods and fruity treats. From our crunchy apples and elegant dried fruit platters to our carefully baked cookies and melt-in-your-mouth cakes, our gift baskets delivered to Rochester are guaranteed to satisfy your sight, smell, and sweet tooth!

Rochester Gift Baskets

Situated between Buffalo and Syracuse, Rochester is New York’s third most populous city. Its northern territory borders Lake Ontario, and much of the land contains prime agricultural grounds for growing flowers and fruit trees, making it a natural choice for Rochester gift basket delivery. In the 1800s, two agricultural partners, George Ellwanger and Patrick Barry, took note of the land’s floral fertility and began planting seeds and developing nurseries. The men became known throughout upstate New York for their brilliant dahlias and freshly cut flowers. Their plants, too, were longer-lasting due to their durable breeding grounds on the shore of Lake Ontario. As their flowers and plants grew gloriously, so did the two men’s reputations. Rochester soon blossomed into a beautifully fragrant city, famous for its fabulous flora — and its legacy continues today.

In addition to flowers, Rochester was famous for its flour manufacturing. In the early 1800s, it was the largest flour-producing city in America, which means our Rochester birthday gift baskets full of flour-baked favorites such as chocolate-covered cookies, cake pops and sweet strawberries make very appropriate gifts. Or you could send a friend one of our moist birthday cakes, which come in fantastic flavors of red velvet, rich chocolate, tantalizing tiramisu and creamy vanilla bean. The cakes can even be personalized for extra enjoyment on someone’s special day.

Compared to the neighboring town of Albany, the flowers and plants of Rochester were available a week earlier, as the men had them delivered fresh from the fields, right after they were cut! This successful business model is much like our very own at Shari’s Berries, and allows us to offer all our customers a 100% freshness guarantee.

George and Patrick’s agricultural journey did not stop with flowers and plants. They also planted local fruit trees in orchards. Sending a Rochester food gift basket instead of flowers, therefore, makes just as much sense! For the fruit fans in your family, our assorted dried fruit collections feature sweetly plump peaches, pears, apricots, mangoes, plums, persimmons and dates. Or mix it up and send someone a sampler platter featuring dried fruit and roasted nuts including almonds, cashews, pistachios and even trail mix to satisfy every snack craving!

It helped the town’s agricultural cause, of course, that Rochester already had many orchards thanks to both local Native American tribes and the work of Johnny Appleseed. So, in the spirit of Mr. Appleseed and in the name of “keeping the doctor away,” send someone a Rochester gift basket with enough apples to keep the doctor away for a month! You can’t go wrong with any of our fruit collections that include ripe red Fuji apples or crispy green Granny Smiths! For added sweetness, indulge a loved one by shipping some hand-dipped caramel apples, freshly coated in crunchy nuts.
