We grow a lot of pears. Everyone knows that. And naturally, some of our Royal Riviera® Pears don't grow pretty enough to be wrapped in gold foil and 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.
