For years we were not aware that the "Cream of the Crop" was the top of the line--duh! Now, not only our clients but also our family members crave these every year and cannot wait to get them . . . we can't wait to receive ours either and only wish we could get them year 'round. Anything that drips juices down your arm deserves to be eaten and deserves to be called "Cream of the Crop!" Thank you for such an incredible product!

I have been buying these pears for a decade now, and they are always great pears. HOWEVER, this time I opted to pay extra for their "Cream of the Crop" pears, and all I got was the same box of pears I've been buying for the past decade.

Again, still good pears, just no different than their regular box of Royal Riviera pears. Don't waste your money, stick with the regular box.

          I get the best results when I leave them out at room temperature until they get a little bit soft (1-2 days), and then refrigerate. Once cold, they're ready to enjoy!

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

            I compared RR pears with other pears I purchased, especially with comice pears but RR pears are a notch above, with the two distinctions below:
            1. RR pears sometimes may look bruised and brown outside, but inside they always stay white and blemish-free!
            2. RR pears are sweet throughout and do not have tart spots like normal pears.
            I have discovered that out of the same box, the pears that are eaten later are more sweeter and fragrant. One really needs to eat RR pears when they are ripe and softer, that's when they are at the peak juiciness and sweetness.

                  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.
