California Pear 8-18-2015

The California Bartlett crop is nearly complete for 2015. The crop has picked out very close to the estimate for this year. The placement of the crop favored the canneries since this was the highest price in history paid by them. The fresh market moved less fruit this year than they had in the past ten years. The fresh market price remained consistently strong for most of the season.
