Organic pears are cultivated in increasing numbers within our growing regions. Organic orchards adhere to specific growing and cultivation requirements, resulting in another fresh USA Pear choice for consumers who desire organic fruit. Organic pears are produced in accordance with strict USDA organic regulations that only allow approved substances for control of pests and to replenish soil nutrients. The Northwest’s fertile ecosystem reduces many difficulties of organic farming, however, production techniques for organic fruit are often more labor-intensive and costly. Still, the Northwest is proud to be one of the world’s largest organic pear producing regions, giving consumers another fresh choice when buying USA Pears.
