As growers, we will forget the 2018 season as quickly as possible

It is clear that we have the perfect climate in the Netherlands and Belgium to grow the highest quality Conference pears. In 2018, we had exceptional high temperatures during summertime like you can only experience in the Southern part of Europe. As result, we had pears with a limited shelf life last season. With the maritime climate in Belgium and the Netherlands, we have the ultimate opportunity to grow Conference pears with the perfect shape and taste to provide 12 months a year our consumers with delicious Conference pears. 2018 was an exceptional year and for 2019 we forecast an excellent ‘Conference Pear Year’.
