Harry & David has grown to become America’s premier choice for gourmet gifts. From our handpicked fresh fruit to our hand-packed gift baskets filled with delicious treats, we are committed to providing premium quality and excellence in every way.
Harry and David named their luxurious pears “Royal Riviera,” setting them apart from varieties grown elsewhere, and throughout the Roaring Twenties, the fame of Royal Riviera® Pears spread as their business boomed.
Following the Great Depression, the brothers’ affluent market began to diminish. While there was no question that the Royal Riviera® Pears were unsurpassed in quality, their concern became finding new buyers. Always innovating, the brothers devised the idea of selling their pears by mail.
Today, the company continues to grow and plan for the future, developing new ways to capitalize on the Harry & David brands. Today, we are proud to be one of the nation’s earliest catalog mail order companies, earning our reputation for unmatched quality and customer service.
