Full Sun. Semi-Dwarf on OHXF, space 12′-16′ apart, needs pollinator
Late September. Many nurseries claim that ‘Seckel’ pear is very fireblight resistant; however we lost ours and two other friends in southern IN lost theirs to the 2012 fireblight epidemic. One of these friends has a ‘Honeysweet’ pear right next to the spot where the ‘Seckel’ was and it went through that blight year just fine. With that real-world experience, we are now offering ‘Honeysweet’ in place of ‘Seckel’. It’s fruit is very similar to ‘Seckel’ with buttery-smooth, chewy flesh, tender skin and a lightly spicy, cinnamon flavor; but it is a little larger in size. Supposedly self-fertile, though it will bear more with a second variety. . . Grafted
