Honeysweet was introduced from Purdue University because of its superior attributes for flavor, appearance, and disease resistance. This is a very high quality "Seckel or sugar-pear" type, which is larger in size than Seckel, and one of the few pears that are self pollinating. Tree is similar to Seckel (a natural dwarf). Ripens late August here, with good storage ability. If you have room for only one pear tree, this is it. More fire blight resistant than Seckel and fruit is larger. Resists leaf spot problems and has the fireblight resistance similar to Keiffer pear. Space @ 10-12' circle Zone 5 - 8.
