Washington D’Anjou pear supplies will be depleted by the end this week. California pear growers will start packing new crop Bartletts later this week.


  • Remaining stocks are dominated by large size pears (90- and 100- count sizes)
  • 110-count and smaller pears are limited


  • Bartlett pears will be available to be consolidated at 4Earth, in Los Angeles, on Saturday, July 29;at least two-day lead time is preferred
  • Growers pack and sell by the count as opposed to the volume-fill method used in Washington
    • 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
  • California Bartletts will be on the market through September

2023-2024 Washington New Crop

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