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

      These are juicy and very flavorful pears. They are easily the best pears I have ever tasted. But with shipping, these pears end up costing roughly $8 for each pear! Needless to say, if you saw gourmet pears at the grocery store selling for $8 each, you would laugh out loud and keep walking. Another problem is that the pears tend to ripen all at once so that a single person or even a couple can hardly eat them fast enough before they start to go bad. So these are an interesting novelty if you have money to burn, but not a great deal.

                  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.
