Honeycrisp apples and Comice pears are delicate fruits, making them a rarity in grocery stores and a perfect gift for anyone on your holiday gift list.
This fruit gift box features six Honeycrisp apples and six Comice pears. Our sweet, crunchy Honeycrisp apples are the most popular of our Hood River apples. And, the tender, buttery Comice pears are one of our best-selling pear varieties. We are especially careful when handling and packaging these delicate Hood River apples and pears. So when these premium fruit gift boxes arrive at your door, or the door of your gift recipients, they are as beautiful and as delicious as they were when they left our farm.
Storage and Handling Tips: Hood River apples and pears are best stored in a cool place such as a cellar or refrigerator. Apples will be crisp and sweet, ready to eat when they arrive at your door. Comice pears, like most pears, will ripen best when stored at room temperature. To determine if they are ready to eat, apply gentle thumb pressure near the stem end. If the fruit gives slightly, it is ready to eat. Bruising on the surface does not necessarily indicate damage to the interior flesh.
Culinary Tips: Enjoy Comice sliced alone or with cheese, especially soft ripening cheeses such as Brie, Camembert or blue cheese. Honeycrisp are an excellent eating apple.
Packaging: Each order of our Hood River Valley Fruit Sampler gift box comes with six Honeycrisp apples and six Comice pears packaged in a custom McCarthy Family Farm box made with recycled materials. They nest in a specially designed foam pad covered with crinkle paper, both of which protect the pears during their trip from our farm to you or your gift recipients.
