Summrtime Royal Pears

Although good, the pears were not as delicious as they are later on during the year. We found them to be a bit grainy and not as juicy.

Purchasing a box of H&D Royal pears has been a family holiday tradition for years! They have always simply been the best! However, I must sadly report that the quality of the pears being sold now do not live up to the H&D standards of the past. I had previously left a negative review regarding the two boxes of Royal Riviera pears I received back in December. Based on that review the CS team at H&D shipped me a new box of pears at no charge (still great customer service). Unfortunately, these are of an even worse quality than the last two batches. Cheap supermarket quality produce dressed up in a fancy box! The pears came damaged and when we cut into several they were either brown inside or had no flavor, I thought that this must have been some kind of joke! PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD QUALITY STANDARDS!

          The pears are all uniform in size and color and come in a protective box to prevent any damage. Only once in many years did I receive a bad box of pears. They were yellow and had brown spots on them but H&D sent me a replacement order.I always send pears when free shipping is involved which makes it a better value. Everyone who has received a box of pears says they were the best they have ever had.

            A friend recently gave me 2 of these pears & I gave 1 of them to my daughter after I raved about it to her. BUT, her husband ate it & he raved about it. I immediately ordered a box for the 3 of us to make sure she gets her share!! I will never buy pears at a grocery again. These Royal Rivera pears are worth their weight in gold and are beautiful as well. I will be regularly buying these for my family. I would recommend them to anyone.

                I sent boxes of peaches to 2 families. One made peach cobbler. The other intended to make peach ice cream but the children ate the peaches too quickly.I ordered 1 box of pears for my husband (his favorite)as a gift to him. He was utterly delighted. He took one pear to work and ate another after dinner each day. Great as snacks or served to company. I was most impressed that the pears were received in excellent condition and they only took one day to ripen. We put them in the refrigerator and the last pear was as good as the first one.l

                    Is it possible to stagger the ripening of the pears?

                      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.
