The pear was often a subject for many Renaissance Masters and a symbol of elegance. The pear was brought to the United States by early colonists. Their spread to the Pacific Northwest is also due to the pioneers who brought the fruit with them while expanding West. Today, pears thrive in Oregon and Washington state.
