Jac. Vandenberg imports South African Forelle pears in May, June and July. The name Forelle translates from the German language to mean “trout”. These pears earned their name due to their speckled nature and a similarity to colors of the Rainbow trout. These pears are known for their excellent sizing, high blush and terrific flavor. Forelle pears thrive in South Africa because of its ideal climate, with its warm summers and crisp, cool winters, and the country’s fertile soil.
