PEARS:
The Bartlett is the most popular variety of pear in the United States.

Most pears (about 95%) sold in the U.S. are grown on the west coast, in Washington, Oregon, and Northern California.

Pear wood is used to make furniture, musical instruments, and wood carvings. It is also used to make wooden kitchen utensils because it doesn’t impart any color or odor to the food and because it is tough enough to withstand repeated trips through the dishwasher without splintering or warping. Architect’s rulers are made from pear wood because it doesn’t warp.
