The Georgopoulos family is proud to introduce Red Sienna Pride est. 2015TM to the Australian & International pear market. Best described as a bold red velvet colour with a distinct stout stem and similar shaping of a Packham pear. Red Sienna Pride est. 2015TM was developed through a specialised pear nursery with the assistance of Chris & James Georgopoulos from GV Independent Packers (GVIP).
James Georgopoulos, son of Chris Georgopoulos, passed away on the 12/03/2016 from bowel cancer. James was the Director of Orcharding at GVIP, managing all varieties from their pre, during and post-harvest state. Since James passing, GVIP was left with a huge loss in its company and most importantly, it’s family. We appreciate that life must go on and therefore the naming of red Sienna Pride est. 2015TM was honoured after the name of his daughter, Sienna Faye Georgopulos.
Red Sienna Pride est. 2015TM provides GVIP with not only a quality product but a product that contains sentimental value. We are proud to provide Red Sienna Pride est. 2015TM to Australia and International consumers, as we would like them to embrace the passion and love James had for growing fruit.
We are currently in the process of planting 150,000 trees for the upcoming season.

Recently I was asked to try a Red Pear, strange I thought, growing up on a pear orchard with green pears, red didn’t make sense! Well red does make sense. This new Red Sienna Pride Pear is appealing to the eye, is sweet and lasts longer in the fruit bowl.
The colour of the Red Sienna Pride is amazing! It is a deliciously sweet crisp pear!
