        Comments about Harry & David Royal Verano Pears:

        Pears were purchased for my daughter who is going through Chemo treatments for Cancer. She can only eat certain foods due to medications and your pears are a bright spot in her current condition. That may sound like an "odd" comment; but in these situations, anything that improves her life process right now makes a big difference. They are delicious and she truly enjoys them. I plan to budget ahead for the next few months and try to send some to coincide with her scheduled treatments. Her husband and my two grandsons love them too. She is a LCDR in the US Navy and she will come through this, as she has other situations; but those were in the service of her country. Thanks again for a great, well enjoyed and appreciated product.

            Sent out 7 boxes of Verano pears for mother's day, everyone loved them, raved about them, and we had one box sent to us so we know they were'nt being polite. These pears are fabulous.
            On the other hand, cold not order 7 gifts online with 7 different messages and addresses.....it just would not work on your site. Called instead and the customer service man was incredibly good and had the order down in 5 minutes.

                Received the pears and chocolate dipped strawberries as a Mothers Day gift. Both products were of excellent quality and at the peak of freshness. For about 4 years I have been sending the Fruit of the Month to my Mom and in all that time only one item was of poor quality. My Mom called H&D and they took care of it right away. I love all there fruits and have tried a few of the other items and have always been happy.

                    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.

                    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.
