With today’s Fruit Grower Report, I’m Bob Larson. Feeling social and want to share how much you’re enjoying your favorite pears? The Northwest Pear Bureau is now holding its third annual “How do you Anjou?” contest on Instagram.

All you have to do to win is post your best, most creative pear pictures on the photo-sharing site …

BUREAU … “So, it’s really simple. Users just take pictures of themselves or their Anjous, wherever they enjoy them. So, someone sent us, this morning, a lovely picture of just sliced Anjous and cheese in their kitchen and that’s fine. And then, some people have sent us some at, like, volleyball games, at the laundromat, someone had carved one. So, it’s really just a great way to document the fun you’re having with pears and encourage enthusiasm for U.S.A. pears at this time of year.”

The Pear Bureau says if you’re unfamiliar with Instagram, it’s easy …

BUREAU … “I think it feels like it’s another app that you have to download, but a lot of people are moving over because as complicated as the other social media platforms. It really is just visual which makes it a great place to be talking about getting outside, getting some

exercise, eating some healthy pears.”

Even the Pear Bureau folks are sharing pics …

BUREAU … “It should be really great fun. We’ve sort of been testing it out and taking our pears to different places in the office and everyone’s having a really good time just sending images.”

The ‘How do you Anjou?’ contest runs through June 7th.

Listen tomorrow for more on the contest, what you could win, and Northwest pears in the Spring.
