The sweet good pears are worth buying again again. It's pear season and we again went to Trader Joe's to buy Harry & David's pear gift boxes, not to send as gifts, but for ourselves to eat. The price this year is $6.99 per box vs $5.99 when we first tried them last year.. These are Comice pears grown in Medford, Oregon. and they are all good this time around. They were very sweet, juicy and delicious. We loved the creamy texture. These pears were so good we will keep buying them whenever we see them at Trader Joe's.
