Melbourne Pear Co

The Melbourne Pear Company was started to provide a marketing outlet for Leslie Apted & Sons, who have been growing fruit at Arthurs Creek in Victoria since the 1920’s. 

The business has expanded greatly over the years and now has members of the fifth generation of farming Apted's working with it. Melbourne Pear operates at the Epping Wholesale Market, representing Leslie Apted & Sons, Bellevue Orchard and growers from across the state. In addition to representing fruit growers Melbourne Pear Company has been the sole representation of Summer Snow juices in the Melbourne Market since we began making juice.

Collaboration between the Russo and Apted families goes back many years and continues as they promote Summer Snow Juices into fruit shops across Victoria. Get in touch with Robert and his crew to pick up some juices and have a yarn.
