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: $9.99

          I have gotten these as a gift from my cousin several years in a row, and given some myself, and purchased some at one of your outlet stores. They are always good, but I think this was the best year ever! They were just delightful to eat and they were very large.

              Thank you for the 2 boxes of pears. Such a surprise. My husband said that you are the kind of people we want to do business with. Pears are delicious. The skin is not edible, very bitter. Years ago the entire pear was fabulous, don't know why it has changed. I have a tough time ordering on your website. Thanks again for your kindness.

                          Nan, our Favorite Royal Riviera Pears are sold by weight, and this options includes 5 lbs. of the juiciest, most delicious pears on Earth. Since Royal Riviera Pears vary in weight, the number of pears may vary. Each box includes approximately 9 pears, but if the pears are larger or smaller, there will be more or less pears.

                        I put them in the refrigerator immediately. Was this correct or do I leave them at room temp until closer to time to give them away? And will they be ruined because I put them in the refrigerator?

                          Kayla, the Favorite Royal Riviera Pears should be placed in the refrigerator to delay ripening. We recommend keeping them in the refrigerator until you are ready to give them as a gift. Keeping the Favorite Royal Riviera Pears at room temperature will speed the ripening process.

                          A:

                          Hannah D., our Favorite Royal Riviera Pears can take a week or more to ripen, depending on the temperature they're stored at. To ripen, keep enclosed in the box they shipped in or a paper bag, at room temperature. 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.

                      • Q:

                        I'm wondering if it's possible to get all the pairs individually wrapped. I know that usually they come with some in foil and some not. Can I get them all in foil? I'd like to hand them out as individual gifts at work. I have too many coworkers to afford buying a whole box for each person. But I'd like to give them something of this quality, even if it's only a little taste. I know I could wrap them myself but it wouldn't look the same.
