Shinkos will likely ship into June, the month new-crop California asian pears are likely to start shipping, Nelley said.

Hot growing weather in December and January in Chile could mean smaller-sized fruit at the beginning of the export deal, but quality was excellent, Nelley said.

Kragie also reported good quality on early-season fruit. Western Fresh expects to ship Chilean asian pears through late June.
