Harry & David Comice Pear Trees – Heritage Tree

This small grove of Comice pear trees are the only remaining of an original planting known as Harry & David Bear Creek Orchards Block 1A. Harry & David Corporation became internationally renowned after the Great Depression when they began marketing their gift boxes of pears to the rich and famous. While most pear growers were hurt by the Great Depression, Harry & David brought unexpected prosperity to the economically depressed Rogue River Valley.

Located in the Harry & David Test Garden at 2500 South Pacific Highway in Medford
