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.

We have bought Harry & David's Royal Riviera pears for years both to enjoy ourselves and to give as gifts. We and the gift recipients have raved about the taste and quality of the pears. In the past we have bought the pears late in the year for our use and as Christmas gifts. However, we recently [February 2012] bought a box for ourselves and one as a gift. We noticed that these pears were not a tasty as usual and didn't understand why. They also took much longer to ripen. Then i noticed on the box that these pears were grown in Chile. We buy fruit from Chile on occasion so we have nothing against the country or its produce. However, be aware that if you buy Royal Riviera pears after the U.S. growing season is over you may be getting a genetically identical pear but one that is of lower quality than those grown in the U.S.

        Comments about Harry & David Royal Riviera® Pears:

        I eat many pears from all over the world, and these are the very best!
        It is best to keep the pears in the dark covered box when they arrive. Keep checking to see when the pears are just right- a little soft to touch. It is then that I begin eating them, or put them in the fridge.
        These pears are marvelous-like something out of the Garden of Eden

                      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.

                      Jules, 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 tempearture. You can tell they're ripe when the flesh at the base of the stem yields slightly to gentle thumb pressure.
