Freshco has successfully exported Pears to world markets for many years. One of the varieties we export (Taylor's Gold) was discovered in Nelson and is an offshoot of Comice.
Freshco sources Pears from the Hawkes Bay and Nelson areas. Both areas provide specialised conditions allowing for the best possible quality and tasting pears.
