Seckel Pears are small, very sweet and fragrant pears. They have green or yellowish-brown skin with pale red russeting.
They ripen in early September. When fully ripe, the flesh will be very soft, but the pears can also be eaten while the flesh is still crunchy.
The Seckel tree can pollinate itself.
Used for eating out of hand or preserving.
Developed from a chance seedling found near Philadelphia around 1800.
