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!

    Comments about Harry & David Royal Riviera Pears:

    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.

        Comments about Harry & David Royal Riviera Pears:

        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.

              I bought these a while ago,some of these pears for myself and another as a gift for my grandma.Im not a big fan of pears,like the ones Ive bought from the grocery before but since it was free shipping I gave it a try.Shipping was fairly fast, the pears did not look like the pictures,they had more blemishes than that but overall taste was pretty good.If you follow the instruction card about ripeness and how to keep them,you'll be okay and can really eat them with a spoon.

                    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

                      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.
