Washington D’Anjou Pear supplies are beginning to wind down. New crop California Bartlett pears will start shipping in late July.


  • Supplies are expected to be depleted by early July
  • Cold, rainy, and snowy weather last spring hampered pear development at the start of the growth process
  • Quality is excellent
  • Stocks are dominated by large size pears (70- and 100- count sizes); 110-count and smaller pears are limited
  • Expect prices to gradually increase until supplies are depleted


  • California pear shipments are expected to start the week of July 24
  • Growers experienced a late bloom due to cold weather and heavy rains this past winter and early spring
  • Post-bloom weather has been ideal which will make for excellent yields and quality

2023-2024 Washington New Crop

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