    Comments about Harry & David Cream of the Crop Royal Riviera® Pears:

    Fresh fruit is ALWAYS a wonderful thing to give OR receive. It says, "Here's something healthy & I care about those who receive it" - Moreso, the name, Harry & David alone speaks high quality. Everyone knows that if it has the Harry & David name, then it's going to be excellent! Whenever nothing but the best will do, it's got to be Harry & David pears!

          I Love Your Cream of the Crop Pears which make the Perfect gift for anybody.
          I would tell recipients of your product to wait 3-5 days before eating which will give the pears time to RIPEN and get juicier and sweeter. A little note or instruction card will do.

              It's Gotta-Be Harry&David: The Cream-of-The-Crop Riviera Pears were received in great shape, the deliciousness of the pears, the fast services provided were exceptional and I truly appreciated the "thank you" cards attached to the boxes; well type4 without errors. The telephone calls I received from the 3 Groups the pears were sent had nothing by praise for Harry & David. Year after year I rely on Harry & David because there are no other known organizations that do it like Harry & David. My heartfelt appreciation for the tremendous job by your staff. Thank you..."Mahalo" from Hawaii.

                  Since this was a gift it was very helpful to know when it was delivered. It went to an elderly relative and just knowing he got it made me comfortable in giving the gift. Since some older people aren't very good at social media, it may be a good idea to include an addressed stamped card to the sender acknowledging the gift. The recipeint would simply drop it in the mail.

                    I want to serve the pears with my Thanksgiving meal. When should I have them arrive in order to leave enough time to properly ripen?

                      A:

                      Kat, we are glad you asked about our Harry & David Cream of the Crop Royal Riviera® Pears! Our pears have a much better flavor and texture when picked slightly green and allowed to ripen off the tree. Also, ripe pears are very difficult to ship successfully. For this reason, our pear gifts may arrive a little on the green side and need a bit of time to ripen. If you keep them at room temperature for a few days you should be amply rewarded with a sweet, juicy treat. Once they are ripe, they may be kept in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

                    We were given some pears and told to follow the ripening instructions, but there wer none in the box. What are the instructions? Thank you in advance. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

                      A:

                      To ripen our pears, keep enclosed in box, at room temperature. Check daily. They are ripe when the flesh at the base of the stem yields slightly to gentle thumb pressure. Once ripe, store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
