According the “Legends and Stories of Lake County,” Bartlett pears have been raised in Lake County commercially since 1885. That was the year of the New Orleans World Fair when some Lake County pears and apples were exhibited and aroused much praise. Some other varieties had been produced but the Bartlett stood out. The dried pears became known as “slabs of gold” and were highly praised as the finest in the world. Kelseyville was known as the “Pear Capital of the World”
