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: $8.99

            Comments about Harry & David Maverick® Royal Riviera® Pears:

            I rated these pears highly, as they have always been superb in the past, and I don't believe it is fair to let one incident ruin all that has gone before.

            I have ordered these pears many times for my 95-year old mother who lives in Prescott, Az. She absolutely loves them. This time the pears arrived, black in the center, and withered and bitter. Apparently, they were shipped via Fed Ex who was unable to fulfill their delivery obligation, so they handed them off to the US Postal Service. The USPS apparently left them in a truck, parked all weekend, and the pears froze. Harry and David refunded the purchase price with no issues.

            The tragic part of this story is my mother no longer trusts the "system" and has emphatically stated she no longer wants me to send her fruit. Too bad, as she really loved these pears in the past. I'll probably let a bit of time pass and will continue to send her Harry and David products.

              While these are "maverick" pears, they are every bit as good and larger than the pears we ordered for Christmas. (We had sent some to friends, and we were a little disappointed to see how small they were, and they ripened all at once.)

              I look forward to the Maverick pears each year because they are such a good value. Who cares if they aren't "beautiful" on the outside?! Like my parents always taught me: It's what's on the inside that counts!

                  The pears were wonderful. I've never purchased fruit on the Internet before and was a little worried about what would arrive, but I was very impressed with the quality and the taste.

                  My wish - shorter time between order and delivery without compromising the quality of the product !! Wishful thinking?!

                      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.

                      A:

                      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.
