I always enjoy a trip to the growing regions to visit the USA Pear orchards. I love seeing how the trees change over the course of the year, and the differences in each season from the year before. During harvest, the trees are heavy with fruit, and autumn is a beautiful season here in the Pacific Northwest – temperatures start to cool after the heat of summer, and skies are clear.
Spring time, however, can be very hit-or-miss. So when a sunny day comes around, we must take advantage of it! Unlike this time last year, these gorgeous blossoms were in full bloom. So while we are still enjoying Green Anjou, Red Anjou, and Bosc, it’s hard to believe that in a few short months, these trees will be full of next season’s crop!
