Pear, Pyrus cummunis / Rosaceae
The pear is available all the year round, because it is cultivated in many areas of the world and there is moreover a wide range of varieties. For instance, the ‘Blanquilla’ pear is practically available all the year round, except during the months of May, June and July. The pear "Castells" is only available in June and July. The pear "Comice’ is found in the markets during the months of October, November and December, whereas the "Conference’ is marketed all the year except for July and August. The "Ercolini’ variety is only marketed during the months of June, July and August, whereas "Packhams’ is found in March, April and May in the N hemisphere.

As example of a European market we take the United Kingdom. The following table shows the exporting countries, as well as the varieties and the weight of the transport packages, that vary according to the country of origin.
