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.

                            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).

                            Lee, we are glad you asked us! 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.

                            That's not entirely true. I received the pears as a gift from someone this March 2014. The pears are not ripe (still green and hard) and no instructions were packed in the boxes. The boxes themselves and packing are very nice and good quality ... but the box did not include instructions on how to ripen them. I assume I need to keep them in the box with the inside padding intact and the lid on until they are ripe (second day since receiving them and they are still green and hard -- so this may take several days).

                            keep them cold and they will last for a week or two. We just put them on the cement floor of the garage and they last for about 2 weeks if the kids don't get them all in one day. :)
