              Bought for my parents who love them.

              The only issue is that the Veranos (which come in summer?) are delivered ripe, therefore my parent refrigerate when they get them. The Rivieras (mostly winter?) tend to be a little less ripe and so they leave them out to ripen a little.

I called customer service and was greeted friendly and politely , and spologized to and assured s new package of pears would be sent out and to the correct address , free of charge. Thank you.

                      I'm thinking of ordering Royal Verano Pears, as a Thank You Gift. Based on the mixed Reviews, if the Pears are NOT good, and I get a "BAD batch," can I have them replaced, at no extra charge (and sent to the same recipient)?

                        Pat, we can send two separate boxes of the Royal Verano Pears (item W-316G) to different addresses. Add just one of the items to your cart and then when at your cart click "duplicate" to send the second box to another recipient. Item W-15478G The Two Boxes of Royal Verano Pears must go to the same address.

                        A:

                        The only possible way to really stagger the ripening would be to:
                        (1) Leave some in the box as instructed in the enclosure & put the box in the refrigerator to slow down the ripening process; put the removed ones on the counter to ripen. Remove others from the box in the fridge to ripen on the counter as desired.
                        (2) Place an order for small boxes a couple weeks apart

                        AW, we are so glad you asked! We do not recommend freezing our Harry & David Royal Riviera® Pears, as this will significantly change the texture and coloring. Freezing pears will result in brown and black flesh that is mushy in texture. Once the pears are ripe, you may store them in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

                        Once ripe the Royal Riviera Pears can be stored for up to 10 days in the refrigerator. Until they're ripe they should be stored in a box at room temperature. You can tell they're ripe when the flesh at the base of the stem yields slightly to gentle thumb pressure.

                        Cel, if you order now you will receive our Royal Rivera Pear, which is a Comise Pear and the same offered in the fall and winter months. In the spring and early summer, our pears are shipped from the Southern Hemisphere, grown in Chile or New Zealand. In fall and winter, our Favorite Royal Rivera Pears are grown in Southern Oregon. The main difference between the pears is the pears grown in the Southern Hemisphere have a different, thicker skin.
