WBC PEAR MATURITY 22/01/2018

COMMENTS:

Sugars are up on last season and quality of WBC pears is of a higher standard than last season. Growers need to avoid putting high volumes of hard green pears on the domestic market with a low pricing point. Now is the time to harvest is you are looking to store until May for WBC pears OR looking to export.

Keep an eye on background colour, sugars and pressures. If hot weather persists the harvest window will be small. This season will provide the opportunity to supply higher quality with good eating quality pears if marketed correctly.
