PRODUCTS : PEARS

• WILLIAMS ( BARTLETT)
Also known as Williams Bon Chrétien or Bartlett, this pear originated in Aldermaston, Berkshire, England, around the year 1799. It is the most cultivated variety in the Western Hemisphere and the
one preferred by the canning industry. Williams represents 35% of the Argentinean pear production.

 

 

• BEURRE D’ANJOU:
In the US it is most commonly known as Anjou. Some authors consider it originated in Belgium and others in the region near Angers, in the central-west area of France towards the middle of the XIX century.

 

 

• PACKAM’S TRIUMPH:
Its origin dates back to 1896-97 in New Wales, Australia. Although far from Williams, Packham’s Triumph is the second one in importance in Argentinean pear production.  It is a mid-size variety
and its form is irregular and uneven. Its pulp is soft, juicy, acidulated, and moderately sugary.

 

• BEURRE BOSC ( KAISER/EMPEROR BROWN )
This pear is also called Kaiser Alexander, Imperatore Alessandro or simply Bosc, and it is originary from France, where it was found towards the end of the XVIII century. Being quite spread in Europe
and the United States, it was cultivated in our region up to the early ‘70s and then it gradually lost importance until the early ‘90s when there was an attempt to re-introduce the variety; however, due
to different reasons, only a few hectares were planted with Beurré Bosc.

 

• WINTER BARTLETT
This variety is very productive, auto-incompatible, although with a low percentage of parthenocarpic fruits. Its fruit is mid to big in size, pyriform, with a very distinct waist and an oblong base.

 

• ABATE FETEL
Its original name is Abbé Fetel. It was found by the prior of the Chessny Monastery, in the Rodano Valley, located in the centre-south of France, in 1866. It is highly appreciated by Italian consumers,
and in our country it started being cultivated only a few years ago.

 

• RED BARTLETT
This variety, which is best known in other regions of the world as Max Red Bartlett, was discovered
as a mutation of Williams in 1938, in the State of Washington, USA. It is a premature variety with moderate production. Sometimes it is necessary to carry out some thinning to avoid crop rotation.

 

• RED D’ANJOU
There are two clones originary from the State of Oregon, USA. The first one appeared in Medford, in 1950, and it is known as Red Anjou Gebhard; the second one was found in Pakdale, and was called Columbia Red Anjou.

 

• GOLDEN R. BOSC
It has a golden yellow green colour, with russeting over its whole surface. Its fruit is medium to big,
and it is elongated and pyriform.
