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 alone 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, chocolate covered pears 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.
