State Fruit Pears
The Legislature designated the pear (Pyrus communis) as the Oregon state fruit by resolution in 2005. Oregon produces a variety of pears including Comice, Anjou, Bosc and Bartlett. The pear ranks as the top-selling tree fruit crop in the state and grows particularly well in the Rogue River Valley and along the Columbia River near Mt. Hood.
