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

You may schedule delivery for a future arrival date at checkout.

                        Thank you for your interest in our Favorite Royal Riviera Pears. 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.

                        The Royal Riviera Pear wrapped in gold foil is the special pear intended to either be given to someone as a special gift or enjoyed for yourself. This is a Harry and David Tradition.

                        Debbie, That is a great question! Single boxes of the Royal Riviera Pears can be shipped to multiple destinations. If you purchase our 2 box special, they are bound together and have to be shipped to the same destination.

                        Jen, thank you for inquiring about our Favorite Royal Riviera Pears. You can slow the ripening process by placing in the refrigerator as soon as you receive them. You will still want to check daily to see if they are ripe, but this will slow the process.

                        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).
