Dried pear source recommended

I am posting to recommend the big, moist dried Bartlett pears from apricotking.com. Dried pears are harder to find in stores than other dried fruit (Trader Joe's discontinued them several years ago - the ones they just brought back don't look as good, and cost a lot more.) I found them at a very low price from fruitstar.com, but as it turned out, they were Asian pears, not what we commonly think of as a pear, grown in China. (This was before the tainted food import news a year ago, so God knows what toxins we ate along with the dried fruit.) So the next time I looked for dried pears online, I took note of the source. These are grown and packed in California. I have gotten some of their other dried fruit and have been likewise happy with the quality. The owner recommends a "pear taco": lay a row of dried bing cherries down the length of a dried pear half, then fold it up and enjoy.
