Summrtime Royal Pears

Although good, the pears were not as delicious as they are later on during the year. We found them to be a bit grainy and not as juicy.

Purchasing a box of H&D Royal pears has been a family holiday tradition for years! They have always simply been the best! However, I must sadly report that the quality of the pears being sold now do not live up to the H&D standards of the past. I had previously left a negative review regarding the two boxes of Royal Riviera pears I received back in December. Based on that review the CS team at H&D shipped me a new box of pears at no charge (still great customer service). Unfortunately, these are of an even worse quality than the last two batches. Cheap supermarket quality produce dressed up in a fancy box! The pears came damaged and when we cut into several they were either brown inside or had no flavor, I thought that this must have been some kind of joke! PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD QUALITY STANDARDS!

      I first tried these pears around the holidays at a friends house and thought I had never had anything as naturally magnificent.

      I purchased a box for my mom and she agreed that they were the best pears she had ever had!!

                  The recipient was ecstatic. He phoned me to tell the story about how his dad, an investment banker, used to always send these pears as a spring/summer gift to his clients and family. His dad has passed and it was wonderful for him to experience the exquisite taste and memory again.

                      A:

                      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.

                      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.
