Grower Fresh Pears

For over 20 years, Countdown has sourced its Grower Fresh pears direct from Hawke’s Bay grower, PickMee and in winter, pears are about as good as they get.

Or as PickMee Orchardist John Altham puts it, “Pears are absolutely gorgeous in the winter. You won’t get them sweeter, you won’t get them crisper – and being so plentiful, prices are pretty good, too.”

John’s also a big believer in Countdown’s commitment to its Grower Fresh promise.

“Grower Fresh is fruit supplied directly off the orchard and it’s grown specifically for Countdown. We put a lot of care and attention into our pears. It’s about supplying good quality fruit that people come back for.”

And while John’s favourite way to eat a pear is straight off the tree, there’s a host of ways our Grower Fresh pears can warm up your winter – like a beautiful Pear and Cinnamon Cake with butterscotch sauce, Pork Schnitzel with Pear Coleslaw or a simple but lovely Warm Chicken & Pear Salad and more.
