When we were upstate earlier this month to visit Grammie, she gave us two pears to bring home with us to enjoy. She told us that the pears were a gift that came in a gift basket from Harry and David. (Squeallllll) Right away, I was extremely excited because I've received pears from Harry and David before, and oh wow, they are like Candy!! I've always wondered what makes these pears out of this world good. Are they growing them on magic trees or what? LOL! They are perfectly sweet, and just the right ripe texture, not mushy or grainy, just perfect juicy goodness. My parents have a bartlett pear tree in their backyard and they have never tasted like these before. Harry and David is having a sale right now on their Royal Riveria pears. Even on sale, it does seem kinda pricey, but take it from me, you won't be sorry! They ARE delicious!
