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.

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

    I purchased a box of Royal Riviera Pears for my dad as a Father's Day gift last year. He absolutely loved them. He even shared a few with me, and I can attest to have great they tasted. Great quality, but be sure to eat them over a sink! There's so much juice in them. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who love pears!

      The pears delivered to me didn't ripen well. I reported it to Harry & David and they sent me a new box. The replacement pears were a different variety, but totally delicious!

                      The pears are delicious. The only drawback is that we had to wait five days for them to ripen, but it was worth it.

                        I sent these pears to my sister as a Birthday gift. They were delivered on time and in great condition. They have remained fresh for the past 20 days. There is nothing as delicious as a Harry & David pear.

                            Steph, we may have to utilize the fumigation process from time to time in order to ship certain fruits from one area to another, though we limit the use of fumigated fruit as much as possible. We also encourage local bats to visit our orchards, which keeps the pests away. This allows us to use less pesticides than our competitors.

                            On rare occasion pears can take a week or more to ripen, depending on the temperature they're stored at. If your recipients report that the pears still have not softened after two weeks at room temperature, please let us know and we'll make it right.

                            Barb, our world-famous juicy Favorite Royal Riviera Pears, once ripe,can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. To ripen them, keep then enclosed in a box, at room temperature and check daily. They are ripe when the flesh at the base of the stem yields slightly to gentle thumb pressure.
