Seckel Pear (sometimes mispelled as Seckle), commonly called Honey Pear or Sugar Pear, is an excellent dessert pear that originates in Pennsylvania. The tree bears small, round, oval fruit with rough, dark-brownish russeted skin. The fruit has smooth, juicy, yellow flesh. It is very sweet with an excellent, aromatic flavor. The fruit is ideal for pickling, spicing, and canning whole. The tree is a slow-growing, upright tree that is naturally semi-dwarf and fairly reliable cropping. It is self-fertile but benefits from cross-pollination. Best grown in a warm location. Ripens in September.
