The California Pear Advisory Board has established a crop estimate for Bartlett pear production in California this summer. The crop is estimated to be down in each of the districts in California. The drop in tonnage will put the crop on track to be close to the short crop of 2014. It appears that demand from the canneries has subsided a little in 2016 over what it was in 2015 in California. It is expected that California will pack out close to two million boxes of fresh Bartlett pears this year. That number is the same as what was packed out in 2015.
