Tridge summary

The Conference variety of pear is the leading type in European pear production, making up 95% of all pear acreage planted in the last 15 years and half of the total annual harvest. It is especially prevalent in northern Europe due to its resilience to drought and pests. While Belgium and the Netherlands have seen a surge in pear production, with the latter now producing more pears than apples, overall pear cultivation in Europe is on the decline, largely due to challenges faced by Italy, the region's main producer.
