Yakima, WA – Borton Fruit started packing New 2015 Crop Bartlett Pears this week. We have been very happy with the way everything is coming together this season as well as the efforts being put forward towards harvesting another quality crop for our customers.
Borton packed a number of bins on August 4th and will be packing more today and through next week. Chad Chronister, our Quality Assurance Manager has been overseeing all receiving’s of the new crop Bartlett Pears and tells us “They are very crunchy. The pressures are really good for being recently picked. Overall, the lot’s I’ve seen thus far have been clean with very few defects. Sizing looks to be a little smaller than last year, but that shouldn’t take away from the customer’s eating experience.”
Please see pictures below of our New Crop Bartlett’s.
Borton plans to begin packing Gala Apples mid- week next week. Stay tuned to learn more about our 2015 Crop Apple & Pear Harvest!
