In our “Winter Mix” of pears you’ll find delicious varieties that are seldom grown in large scale: Taylor’s Gold, Warren, and Comice. And even with varieties you might recognize, you’ll taste the amazing difference when our pears are allowed to mature on the tree and are harvested at their peak.
More than your average pear
Over the years, we’ve had many requests for pears. However, we typically see only the most common varieties of pears in grocery. In addition, commercially grown pears are normally harvested far too early, in an effort to make pears available year round. What we have found is that the finest pears are grown in the Pacific Northwest, particularly the Hood River Valley at the foot of majestic Mt. Hood in Oregon.
Caring for your pears
Pears are a hearty fruit with care instructions somewhat unique compared to other varietal fruits we carry. For example, did you know pears do not ripen fully on the tree? Full maturity happens right before a pear is ripe. This short window for harvesting is key to the pearfect pear!
