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

The first order came with several piece of fruit marked and bruised. H&D promptly replaced the order - gold star for service. The replacement order was better, but still not great. Perhaps it's something in the orchards this year; perhaps it's weaker quality control. Last year's pears were pristine, crisp and amazing - this year's didn't look as nice, were inconsistent, and tended toward mealiness.

They're still delicious - but for what they cost, I expected better.

I can't believe how terrible these pears looked when we rec'd them. We used to get these pears every year (until about 5 years ago) and I thought we'd try them again. What a shock to see what we received - instead of the gorgeous pears, we received mis-shappen, browning pears that were worse than the quality of what we could get at our local grocer. never again!

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

    These were the best pears I have ever eaten. I don't think I'll ever want to buy fruit at the local grocery store again. Had to ration them, as I could have eaten them all in the same day.

      I shipped to several different people. While the deliveries went at different times, I was notified each time so I knew no one was missed.

                    We recieved the pears as a gift but we also ordered them for ourselves and family members for the holidays. They were sweet and delicious! Kept them in the refrigerator and took one or two out at a time to soften and ripen. They were wonderful every time.

                        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).

                        Elizabeth, we ship our pears before they are ripe so they often do not arrive ready to eat. Every shipment includes ripening instructions for the recipient.

                        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. :)

                        That is a very difficult question to answer in words. They are like juice wrapped in skin. They are quite possibly the greatest, most delicious, natural food you will ever eat!
