Expertly grown and tended, these exquisite and extraordinary pears make wonderful gifts, and each one is picked by hand. Royal Verano Pears are perfect for any meal of the day, but we especially suggest trying them with a slice of cheese at snacktime or after dinner.

    Comments about Harry & David Two Boxes of Royal Verano Pears:

    My son loves these pears and carefully checks them every day for ripeness. He takes one to work for his lunch and enjoys them very much. I order another box each time the supply gets low.
    I have sent boxes of these pears to friends back East and they say they love them, too.

        Comments about Harry & David Two Boxes of Royal Verano Pears:

        The shipping is a little high to Alaska, but the product is first class. The Verano pears were juicy, colorful and did appear as advertised. The instructions on how to let the fruit ripen properly and store for the best long term quality were very helpful. I bought two boxes for myself and two boxes for my mother just because...she loves pears and these wre the best.

              I have ordered more than a dozen boxes of pears in the last few months. I try to get free shipping as much as possible. I buy them for my sister who is ill and she loves them. Grocery store pears do not compare. They are juicy and tasteful. Sometimes I send them in our niece's name, Sheila, but they all come from the same purse.

                            Lori, only one pear per box in our Two Boxes of Royal Verano Pears is wrapped in gold foil. You may want to call the Harry and David retail store to see if they are able to customize a gift for you with more pears wrapped in foil. Please visit our store locator here: http://www.harryanddavid.com/h/storelocator

                            We recommend selecting your delivery by date as 4 days before your event to ensure your pears will ripen. They are ripe when the flesh at the base of the stem yields slightly to gentle thumb pressure. Once ripe, they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

                            Hello Lin. Ripening our Royal Verano Pears is the same as ripening our Royal Riviera Pears:

                            To ripen, keep them enclosed in the box at room temperature, making sure to check them daily. They are ripe when the flesh at the base of the stem yields slightly to gentle thumb pressure. Once ripe, they can be stored in a refrigerator for up to 10 days.

                          That's a big variable.

                            For the savings on the second box to apply, both boxes need to be shipped to the same address. We harvest our southern Oregon crop of Royal Riviera Pears in the fall. During the spring and early summer, we obtain our pears from boutique orchards in the Southern Hemisphere.

During our off season, we use orchards in different growing regions to supply our famous pears most of the year.
