About the origin

HiPP Organic pears need a place that’s not too hot and not too cold, with a period of frost during winter in order to grow and to mature. This kind of climate can be found in Southern and Central European countries like ItalySpain und Argentina. These regions also have suitable soils that are deep, well-ventilated and moderately moist. In both Europe and South America, we refrain from using chemical sprays in all our regions of origin. Only when our organic pears have obtained a balance between sugar content and acidity that is ideal for babies are they harvested. In the northern hemisphere, harvesting takes place from September until October, in the southern hemisphere from February until March.
