Seckel Pear Tree

Old Fashioned Sugar Pear

  • Small, extra-sweet fruits with creamy flesh
  • Ideal for snacking, canning and spicing
  • Ripens in September
A longtime favorite for pickling and spicing, the Seckel Pear Tree bears small-to-medium, russeted golden-green fruits with red cheeks. Also called a candy pear or sugar pear, Seckel pears are extra sweet with just a hint of spice. Their smaller size makes them favorites for tucking into children's lunch boxes for a nutritious snack. Because of their sweetness, they're also a good dessert pear. The trees bear showy, white, fragrant spring blossoms, making them a good choice for the edible landscape. The fruits set on long-lived spurs, like apples. Fruits ripen in September. Self pollinating. Zones 4-8.
