Pear Varieties

Chelan Fresh Pears

Deriving from the beautiful hills of Washington, our pears are superior in taste and quality. Their smooth, sweet taste makes pears fantastic for both sweet and savory dishes, while also serving as the perfect fresh snack.

Bartlett

Bartlett

This pale green pear ripens to a golden yellow, as the flesh softens and fills with sweet juice. Bartlett pears are a very popular variety and are commonly found in markets. Great for snacks and canning, this highly popular pear has a smooth, spicy, classic pear taste. Bartlett pears are available starting mid-August.

Bosc

Bosc

This rich, sweet and spicy pear is known for both its beauty and for its taste. Bosc pears are more firm, making them ideal for pies, baking, and poaching. A unique attribute to Bosc pears is they are sweeter and more flavorful earlier in their ripening process than other varieties. Their complex flavor can be enjoyed before their flesh feels completely soft. Bosc pears are available from the start of September.

Red Anjou pears are available starting toward the end of September.
