Potential Increase in Exports
The Pear Bureau Northwest estimates that direct access to China will allow Pacific Northwest pear growers to initially export between 100,000 and 150,000 cartons of fresh pears, valued at up to $2 million, to that country per year. Growers in our region produce pear varieties not grown in China including some red varieties that should prove to be very popular in China’s major cities. Red and green Anjou pears and the Starkrimson are the varieties that hold the most promise.
