Geocache Description:

This cache is part of the Cascade Farmlands GeoRomp. If you're participating in the GeoRomp, be sure to stamp your passport with the ink stamp inside the cache to verify your visit. Do not remove the stamp, it's required for the GeoRomp.

People have been eating pears for 4,000 years, and the United States is the 3rd-largest pear producer in the world. The volcanic soils and climate in Cascade Farmlands are ideal for growing pears, and the upper Wenatchee Valley is the world's largest grower of premium organic pears.

Most grocery stores have 2-5 kinds of pears. But in the Cascade Farmlands, growers grow and harvest many more varieties, including Bartlett, Red Bartlett, Anjou, Red Anjou, Flemish, Concord, Asian, and Bosc. One of the smallest pears in the world is also one of the sweetest - the Seckel is the size of a golf ball, but crisp, juicy, and delicious!

Did you know: The best way to tell if a pear is ripe is to check the neck. If it gives a little, it’s ripe.

Cache location: The cache is next to a duck pond in a 10-acre Anjou and Bartlett orchard, with the permission of the landowner. You can drive up and park next to the pond, but please don't go into the orchards.

The Cascade Farmlands GeoRomp is a series of 12 caches that showcases the agriculture, recreation, and scenery of North Central Washington. Each cache has a different theme and highlights a different community: Leavenworth, Plain, Peshastin, Cashmere, Wenatchee, East Wenatchee, Entiat, Chelan, Manson, Orondo, Waterville, and Quincy.
