The story of the delectable pear begins in the soil. Rich volcanic soil provides the foundation needed for growing sweet, superb pears, starting with a wide variety of minerals. As water from nearby riverbeds and snowmelt seeps into the ground, these minerals are enveloped and soaked up through the pear tree’s roots. Once inside, these minerals and water serve as vital nourishment as the tree flourishes in the northwest sunshine. With this exceptional combination of nature’s elements, the pear tree bears succulent fruit that ensnares some of these vital nutrients in a sweet and juicy package for our enjoyment.
