Washington D’Anjou Pear supplies will be depleted by the end of next week. California pear growers will start shipping new crop Bartletts by the middle of next week.


  • Remaining stocks are dominated by large size pears (90- and 100- count sizes)
  • 110-count and smaller pears 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
    • The attached photos show Washington and California pear packs

2023-2024 Washington New Crop

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