MEET THE GROWER

Ron Meyer’s family has been growing pears in Oregon’s Rogue River Valley for three generations, perfecting growing techniques to produce the most delicious pears in the world. Ron says it’s cool nights balancing warm days that makes the Rogue Valley the ideal climate for growing pears – especially the super-sensitive Comice. With over 100 years experience growing pears in the region, it’s not hard to believe the Meyer family grows the sweetest, creamiest pears you’ll ever eat.
