Also called Sugar Pear, Candy Pear. Seckel pears are renowned for their petite size and fruit that is jam-packed with candy-sweet, subtly spicy flavor. They are wonderful fresh, but they really shine when poached or preserved. Resistant to fire blight. Originated near Philadelphia in the 1700s. Ripens in September. Pollinator required: Choose Starking® Delicious™ or Moonglow.
Note: Seckel is not a suitable pollinator for Bartlett pear trees.
