Markon First Crop Washington D’Anjou Pears will be available through July. The new crop California Bartlett season will begin the week of July 22.
Quality is excellent
Stocks are dominated by large fruit (80- and 100-count sizes); smaller pears (120- and 135-count sizes) are limited
Growers pack and sell by the count as opposed to the volume-fill method used in Washington
California suppliers ship 40-pound packs; Washington growers use 44-pound cartons
Due to this pack difference, California ships approximately 6 to 10 fewer pieces of fruit per unit compared to Washington
2019-2020 Washington New Crop
The Bartlett season is forecast to begin the second week of August
D’Anjou production will start early September
