      Comments about Harry & David Royal Verano Pears:

      I am a faithful fan of Royal Rivieras, but have had a few disappointing experiences in Spring when they are nearing the end of their season. Harry & David suggested the Royal Verano pears, and I am so glad they did! Wonderful sweet flavor and good texture. A little smaller than the Rivieras, but that's fine with me. Well done, H & D!

        Sent this to my son as an Easter gift. He watches his diet and is physically fit so pears were a perfect gift.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivered right on time and in great condition. My son was surprised since he lives in Florida and worried about the heat affecting the product.

            My daughter was not able to come home for the Easter Holidays, she is a Full-time College Student. I asked her if there was something special I could send her. My daughter suggested some Harry & David Pears.

            The H&D Pears arrived before Easter and my daughter is very Happy with the Wonderful taste of the Pears as well as the presentation/packaging the Pears arrived in. I will definitely purchase more H&D Pears.

                      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.

                    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.

                      A:

                      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.
