We're well known for growing a lot of pears, and naturally, some of our Royal Riviera® Pears don't meet the premium standard we use for the gold foil-wrapped pears that we put in our gift baskets and towers. Sometimes there aren't enough leaves to protect them from the sun and they get a little redder than others. Sometimes they grow too close to the branch and have a funny shape. However unique these Royal Riviera® Pears look on the outside, one thing is for sure, on the inside they're just as juicy and sweet as their more photogenic siblings.
  • 2 boxes, each containing approx. 9 Maverick® Royal Riviera® Pears (5 lb per box)
  • Net Weight: 10 lb

Packaging works effectively to deliver pears in perfect condition and the speed of delivery is remarkable. After Christmas they were ready to eat, no waiting for ripening. The economy is in buying Mavericks over the fancies - more tasty fruit for less $$.

When I ordered Maverick pears, I expected aesthetic imperfections. My expectations were exceeded—but not in a good way. The description bills these pears as misshapen or discolored. My mavericks actually had normal shapes and regular coloration, save for the welts and flesh wounds that rendered the pears largely inedible. After waiting for the pears to ripen (most took 3 days, some are still ripening at 5), I selected one and sliced into it. After cutting away the oxidized (browned) patches and carving around the gouges and scrapes, I had about 1/3 of a pear to eat. This experience has been consistent across the lot. Additionally, the skins on these pears are leathery and bitter. I would recommend using these pears for poaching or making sauce. They won't due for on-the-go snacks (too much paring) or pretty desserts. In sum, I would say that—if you're giving these as a gift—you'd be better off assembling a bouquet of red bartletts from the grocery store.

            Comments about Harry & David Two Boxes of Maverick® Royal Riviera® Pears:

            Harry & David pears are the best available. They are juicy, sweet, and the flesh of the fruit is always creamy and never mealy (which often occurs in other pears). When they offer 2 for the price of 1, buy pears for all your family & friends!

                    These pears are of consistently high quality and value--not perfect in appearance but every bit as good tasting as their "perfect" counterpart! Best pears I've found--great in salads or with cheese or just by themselves. These are a staple holiday gift for me-- appreciated and enjoyed by everyone!

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Delivery was prompt and condition was great.

                            We begin our fall harvest around the beginning of October, picking each of our delicious and juicy Royal Riviera Pears at the peak of quality and freshness. This begins our largest harvest of these magnificent pears, which carries through the fall months.
