Protected Designation of Origin
This is a first for Spain—the only pear that has the protection and guarantee that our logos provide. And it comes as no surprise, because this is a product with such flavourful features and excellent quality that it is truly unique. One of the reasons for its intense flavour is its high fructose content.
REASONS TO ENJOY
These pears have been grown since the 17th century. Perhaps that’s why farmers know exactly what to do—they follow age-old farming traditions and ensure that after harvest, the fruit is handled with exquisite care.
The extraordinary microclimate of the area lends this fruit its special features. The typically mild Mediterranean climate of La Rioja borders on Atlantic and high-mountain climate regions which, together, combine to give this fruit its exceptional quality.
