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.
  • 2 boxes, each containing approx. 9 Royal Riviera® Pears (5 lb per box)
  • Net Weight: 10 lb

Standard Shipping and Processing: $10.95

You may schedule delivery for a future arrival date at checkout.

DEFINITELY OUR "FAVORITE" TREAT!

By Mrs. Z ~ ready for another pear, please!

from Signal Mountain, TN

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • All Our Family Loves Them
  • Always A Welcome Gift

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Cut In Half And Enjoy

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

    We give boxes of "The Favorite" (sometimes two boxes)to many of our family members and friends for Christmas. Every year we receive glowing "thank you's" from each one. Several say it is their FAVORITE GIFT! (I agree ~ we "give ourselves" several boxes, too, and thoroughly enjoy them.) In fact, we ate our last pear yesterday, and I am going to order two more boxes while they are still available!

    How do we use them? Very simply! I don't even try to improve on perfection ~ I just cut them in half, remove the core, and (if I am being a "little fancy") remove the skin! Then grab a spoon or fork and just savor each bite! Yum! Thank you for a consistently wonderful product!

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

        You have to open and make sure that they aren't ripening too fast. If so put them in the fridge. Otherwise Ijust leave on the table and everyone can pick one that's to their liking. I am now waiting for an apple & pear crisp to come out of the oven. Thanks for the enclosed recipe!

                        Laura, thank you for your interest in our Favorite Royal Riviera Pears! 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.

                        Refrigeration will help slow the ripening process. Once ripe, you can store them in a refrigerator for up to 10 days.
