Hailed as a “gift of the gods” by the Greek poet Homer in "The Odyssey," the venerable pear has graced diverse civilizations for more than four thousand years.
Today, the United States is the third largest pear producing country in the world, and more than 55 countries look to the U.S. for sweet and juicy fresh pears. The orchards of Oregon and Washington in particular allow heirloom varieties of pears to flourish to perfection in their pastoral terrain, with 84% of the country's fresh pears being grown in these two Pacific Northwest states.
Ten principal varieties of pears are grown in Oregon and Washington, each with its own color, flavor and texture. These pears are each picked by hand, and they are renowned as being some of the world’s finest. Across the U.S. and around the world, these delectable pears from Oregon and Washington are sold under the USA Pears brand and are highly regarded as a premium quality fruit.

About our Low Prices
Pear Bureau Northwest is a nonprofit organization, and as such, the items for sale in this store are priced at the cost of production plus the estimated average expense of the required shipping material (boxes, envelopes, packing materials). We do not make a profit from the sale of these materials. We make these materials available so that pear lovers can better enjoy the pears they purchase... and that's why they're available at such a low price!
