The Fruit Company’s Chocolate Covered Comice Pears

Scott  Webster, The Fruit Company CEO, his father and his grandfather have been growing Comice Pears in Hood River, Oregon since 1942.  As the largest grower of gourmet Comice Pears in the Hood River Valley, Scott decided to utilize his mother Mary’s idea, to bring Chocolate Covered Comice Pears to eager consumers across the nation.

In order to make this delectable treat, the pears are handled with care as they are peeled, sliced and dehydrated.  We do not add any sugar or sulfites to the drying process of our pears. Once the pears are dried to the perfect moisture level, when the dried pear alchocolate-covered-comice-image3-470one suggests there is a hint of caramel, they are dipped into milk chocolate, packaged and hand-packed into a beautiful gift box you would love to give or receive. Chocolate Covered Comice Pears are a unique find because of the difficulty growing such a fragile pear, but it is the sweetest and most delicious pear to pair with chocolate!

You can purchase this sweet treat through our website and also in select Made in Oregon stores.  Just recently, The Fruit Company passed out hundreds of samples of our Chocolate Covered Comice Pears and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  The creamy flavors of the milk chocolate paired with the soft, chewiness of the pear goes together seamlessly.

 

The Fruit Company® got its start in 1942 when Roy Webster began selling apples and pears from his orchards located in Hood River, Oregon. The area was perfect for growing fruit thanks to the volcanically enriched soil and glacial water from the nearby Mt. Hood. The fruit was exceptional. The company was passed down from father to son and today is owned and operated by Roy's Grandson Scott Webster.
