PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

We're well known for growing a lot of pears, and naturally, some of our Royal Riviera® Pears don't meet the premium standard we use for the gold foil-wrapped pears that we put in our gift baskets and towers. Sometimes there aren't enough leaves to protect them from the sun and they get a little redder than others. Sometimes they grow too close to the branch and have a funny shape. However unique these Royal Riviera® Pears look on the outside, one thing is for sure, on the inside they're just as juicy and sweet as their more photogenic siblings.
  • Approx. 9 Maverick® Royal Riviera® Pears (5 lb)
  • Net Weight: 5 lb

Standard Shipping and Processing: $9.99

You may schedule delivery for a future arrival date at checkout.

    Went with standard shipping but it took a week to be delivered. Pears were ripe by the time they arrived so had to be used very quickly.

        Delivery was quick, considering we are on opposite sides of the US. The pears arrived in great condition, didn't ripen too quickly but quickly enough to be a bit soft, which is how I like them

            Service and delivery comments:

            The first order was sent a week early and over ripened by the time I saw the person the gift was for. I contacted Harry and David and they immediately sent another. No questions asked. They just wanted my experience to be right! Thank you

              When I received the box of Maverick pears, I was very disappointed with how all the pears looked like! All had blemishes & did not look like what was on the picture. I took a photo & email customer service of Harry & David. I'm pleased by the immediate response! They apologized for the error & immediately offered to send me another box of pears. This morning, the gift was delivered & they all look very good!
              This gesture shows that your company has high standards & you value customer satisfaction & relations! I'm truly impressed!!!

                  I always love the Maverick pears! They are just the same as the traditional royal riviera pears, but more affordable just because they were slightly less pretty and perfect!

                          CJ, the photo shown on the website is what the Maverick Royal Riviera Pears might look like. The difference between our Maverick Royal Riviera Pears and Favorite Royal Riviera Pears is purely cosmetic. Though they may have bumps or be lightly sun burnished, our Mavericks are as sweet and as juicy as our Favorite Royal Riviera Pears.

                          Patty, thank you for asking about our Maverick® Royal Riviera® Pears! Once you place your order, our orders are shipped the next business day if in stock. They will arrive in 5-7 business days. Once the pears arrive, you may ripen them by keeping them enclosed in the box they shipped in or a paper bag, at room temperature. They are ripe when the flesh at the base of the stem yields slightly to gentle thumb pressure. We suggest that you check your pears daily. This process should take a few days. Once ripe, store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
