Seckel History


The American Pear.  very small unless thinned and properly grown, symmetrical, the skin is a dull brownish yellow overlaid with russet and dull red blush.  The flesh is somewhat granular with some grit at the center, buttery and very juicy,  Noted for sweet, aromatic, spicy flavor, rates among the best of dessert quality pears.  The core is susceptible to breakdown if held on the tree too long and does not ripen properly id harvested too early.  This pear does not respond well to cold storage.  A distinctive characteristic of the Seckel is that it does not lose much quality if allowed to ripen on the tree.  On the market late August to December.
