The California Bartlett pear season will end in late November. Markon First Crop (MFC) Bartlett and D’Anjou Pears are available out of Washington.


  • MFC D’Anjou Pears will remain available through June; stocks are dominated by extremely large sizes (70- through 90-count fruit)
  • The season for MFC Bartlett Pears will run through early February; supplies are dominated by large sizes (90- and 100-count fruit); 110-count and smaller pears are tight
  • Washington growers use 44-pound cartons, thus shipping 6 to 10 more pieces of fruit per unit than California pear packs
  • Overall quality is excellent
