    I sent these pears to my friend on his birthday as I do every year and know he would miss them if I quit sending them which I am not. He looks forward to receiving them. He is hard to buy for so this helps me and he loves them.

              I have been sending Harry and David baskets and fruit for the past few years as gifts. They are always well received and enjoyed by the recipient. Not the cheapest out there, but I feel they're well worth the money.

                  I had received a Harry and David gift basket last Christmas- 2013 and there were some Rivera Pears included. When I was visiting my daughter I brought some of the items in the basket to share and she said to me-"Mom we got one of those baskets at work and those pears are amazing - no, she said, they are life changing."

                    These pears are simply the best! Every pear was perfect. These have to be the sweetest, juiciest pears I've ever eaten. They can be used for snacks or for dessert. I will definitely keep ordering them.

                      Is it possible to stagger the ripening of the pears?

                        A:

                        The only possible way to really stagger the ripening would be to:
                        (1) Leave some in the box as instructed in the enclosure & put the box in the refrigerator to slow down the ripening process; put the removed ones on the counter to ripen. Remove others from the box in the fridge to ripen on the counter as desired.
                        (2) Place an order for small boxes a couple weeks apart

                        Soph -- Our Royal Riviera Pears are not a type of Asian pear, but a Comice pear. And, no, we do not carry any Asian pears at this time.

                        AW, we are so glad you asked! We do not recommend freezing our Harry & David Royal Riviera® Pears, as this will significantly change the texture and coloring. Freezing pears will result in brown and black flesh that is mushy in texture. Once the pears are ripe, you may store them in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

                        Once ripe the Royal Riviera Pears can be stored for up to 10 days in the refrigerator. Until they're ripe they should be stored in a box at room temperature. You can tell they're ripe when the flesh at the base of the stem yields slightly to gentle thumb pressure.

                      If I order the royal riveria pears today July 2, will these be the actual pear I'm getting or are the royal riveria pears out of season now. If out of season, what type of pear will I be receiving?

                        Cel, if you order now you will receive our Royal Rivera Pear, which is a Comise Pear and the same offered in the fall and winter months. In the spring and early summer, our pears are shipped from the Southern Hemisphere, grown in Chile or New Zealand. In fall and winter, our Favorite Royal Rivera Pears are grown in Southern Oregon. The main difference between the pears is the pears grown in the Southern Hemisphere have a different, thicker skin.
