Seckels are tiny pears, with a chubby, round body, small neck, and short stem. Their skin is usually green, but frequently exhibits a dark maroon blush that sometimes covers the entire surface of the pear.
As they say, good things often come in small packages. In the case of the diminutive Seckel, this could not be more truthful. The smallest of all commercially grown pears, Seckels are also the sweetest. So sweet in fact, that the near bite-size morsels are sometimes called "sugar pears."
Usage: Great eaten fresh, in salads or canned.>> Back to Main Pears Page
