UPDATE: PEARS

June 23, 2022

Markon First Crop Washington D’Anjou Pears will be available through late July.  New crop California Bartlett pears will begin shipping the week of July 11.

Washington

  • Storage supply quality is excellent
  • Remaining stocks are dominated by large size pears, 90- and 100- count sizes
  • 110-count and smaller pears are limited

California

  • 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
    • The attached photos show Washington and California pear packs

2022-2023 Washington New Crop

  • The Bartlett season is forecast to begin in mid-August
  • D’Anjou production will start in early September
