PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The pears that started it all. Our founders, Harry and David, called these pears "so big and juicy, you eat them with a spoon®." That was 80 years ago, when the brothers started selling Southern Oregon-grown Royal Riviera® Pears as gourmet gifts. Royal Riviera® Pears are delicate and require a very specific climate in which to grow, which makes the warm days and cool nights of Southern Oregon ideal for cultivating this famous fruit. The sweet flavor, buttery texture, and extreme juiciness of these pears are what make them so delicious. Every one is handpicked and packed to arrive at your door in perfect condition.
  • Approx. 9 Royal Riviera® Pears (5 lb)
  • Net Weight: 5 lb

Standard Shipping and Processing: $8.95

          I remember these pears from over 50 years ago when we received them several years in a row. Yes, one can eat them with a spoon so as not to miss any of the delicious juice.

              Delicious pears. My daughter shared with me. We ate as is and also cut up in kale salads. They were wonderful! A bit smaller than I expected, but really good.

                                Mary, we are glad you asked! You may definitely order multiples of our Favorite Royal Riviera Pears to be delivered at different times. Just add the pears to the cart, make sure each box has quantity of one and then you may choose the delivery dates on Step 2 of our checkout process. Please keep in mind that these dates are arrive by dates and not always the exact date the item will arrive. If you have any further questions, you may contact us at service@harryanddavid.com.

                                Staff answer did not address the question of no longer having the shipping box. I have received these as a gift three times (WONDERFUL sister!), and have found they can be ripened in a closed brown paper bag at room temp (and, no, none of my pears came with ripening instructions).

                                Lee, we are glad you asked us! To ripen, keep enclosed in box, at room temperature. Check daily. They are ripe when the flesh at the base of the stem yields slightly to gentle thumb pressure. Once ripe, store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

                                That's not entirely true. I received the pears as a gift from someone this March 2014. The pears are not ripe (still green and hard) and no instructions were packed in the boxes. The boxes themselves and packing are very nice and good quality ... but the box did not include instructions on how to ripen them. I assume I need to keep them in the box with the inside padding intact and the lid on until they are ripe (second day since receiving them and they are still green and hard -- so this may take several days).

                                Elizabeth, we ship our pears before they are ripe so they often do not arrive ready to eat. Every shipment includes ripening instructions for the recipient.

                                keep them cold and they will last for a week or two. We just put them on the cement floor of the garage and they last for about 2 weeks if the kids don't get them all in one day. :)

                                Txtopher, oour pears do not arrive ripe. On rare occasion pears can take a week or more to ripen, depending on the temperature they're stored at. Ripening instructions will be included with the pears upon delivery!
