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

    Comments about Harry & David The Favorite® Royal Riviera® Pears:

    A pro and a con--depending on how one eats those fabulous pears: they all ripen about the same time, making it a challenge for one or two people to eat them all before they are overripe. A box with staged ripening times (well marked) would be good for me.

              These pears arrived within a day or two of being ripe and ready to eat. They are the best, juiciest pears I have ever had. When my son said he did not particularly like pears, I cut one up for him, and he had to admit he had never tasted a pear like that and did not know pears could taste that good. I was very selfish about the remaining pears and did not share them, but savored every one myself!

                        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.

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).
