Pears are one of the most ancient fruits that dates back as far as 5,000 B.C. They were once referred to as the "gift of the gods" by the famous Greek poet Homer. 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. Due to the pear's positive impact on the Oregon economy, it was named the official state fruit of Oregon.
