Last fall, I made a discovery while on a mission to find the perfect pear. I discoverd “Seckel”. They are a green pear that can have little to a lot of “red blush”. They are smaller than any other pear. In fact the bag they come in claims that they are the smallest commercially grown pear. The bag also claims that they are the sweestest pear and I can testify that this is true. They are very sweet. They make the perfect snack for kids. I think everyone will love their flavor. They are my favorite. The only trouble I have had with them is that when placing them in a brown bag to soften them up, they tend to overrippen and rot if you don’t check on them regularly.

Seckel Pears are believed to have orginated in the United States in the early 19th century in the Philadelphia area. The name “Seckel” is believed to have come from the farmer who introduced them.
