The Cold Snap pear from the Niagara Valley: A Canadian invention!

Since 2016, it’s been possible to eat Canadian pears… in wintertime! Thanks to a group of researchers and producers from Ontario, we can now enjoy the Cold Snap, the first Canadian pear to be trademarked. Ricardo visits a Niagara Valley orchard and chats with Dr. Amy Bowen, who heads up the research program that was responsible for making the Cold Snap a reality. Without her, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy this tasty Canadian invention!
