Fruit was running a size or two smaller than usual in early August, Wolter said, but there was still plenty of time for warmer weather to get it caught up.

“We’re not concerned about size,” she said.

Mast expected a normal mix of sizes, with excellent quality and appearance.

“It’s one of the cleaner years we’ve had,” he said.

This is great news for the pear industry and U.S. agriculture in general. Pears are a fantastic whole food with a great story of value to share.
