Meet our growers.
a pair with personality.
Our Australian growers produce the world’s best pears year after year thanks to a combination of passion and technical expertise.
Technology gets much of the attention for how it is revolutionising orchard management, but every stage of the growing process is an important opportunity to improve fruit quality, from pre-planting through to harvest management.
"Rico has only a limited number of growers – like me – who are selected to grow the product.
This ensures we keep the cowboys out, maintains tight quality control, a better eating experience"
Matt Lenne – Lenne’s Orchard
"With Rico, we have a sweet product with great texture which consumers want to eat, and a clever brand consumers can have a laugh with.
The marketing gurus describe it as a seriously good pear that doesn't take itself too seriously - I like that. More importantly, my team loves it and we love growing it."
