Found Poetry: Wind-Scarred Pears
Wind-Scarred Pears Noticing unique markings on your Royal Riviera® Pears? These blemishes are called wind scars and are the result of high winds whipping tree branches and causing abrasions to the skin of our delicate pears. Sadly, these same winds contributed to the spread of devastating fires in our Southern Oregon community---destroying homes and displacing countless people. We often pride ourselves in the beauty of our Royal Riviera® Pears, and this harvest is no exception, if only in  a different way. These scars are a reminder of what our community has been through and how we've rallied to support one another. The untouched, juicy, delicious interior of the pear demonstrates---it's what's inside that counts. If for any reason you're not happy with your purchase, just let us know and we'll make it right with an appropriate replacement or refund. Harry & David
