Honeysweet Pear Tree

Luscious Flavor, Self-Pollinating

Super-sweet "sugar-type" pear with a rich, spicy flavor and exceptional quality. One of the few that is self-pollinating—does not need another variety for good fruiting. Keeps well in storage; ripens late August. Zones 5-8.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

Why buy a Standard Deluxe or Li'l Big Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula and a premium tree guard to protect the trunk for gnawing pests, weed trimmers and mowers. Li'l-BIG™ Deluxe fruit trees also include our innovative tree support, recommended for all Li'l-BIG trees.
