Fruit baskets aren't what they used to be. Today's best fruit baskets trade in the tasteless apples and oranges for those packed with flavor and plucked right from the tree. You'll now find tropical fruits, organic fruits and even pickled fruits ready to be gifted. Stunning vegetables are also included in the mix now, as well as a few extra treats.

Fruit is also something everyone can use. It fits into a plant-based lifestyle, and we have a feeling your recipient might appreciate the break from the overload of indulgence the holiday season brings.

These are 20 of the best fruit baskets and fruit gifts you can send this season.
