Pyrus communis 'Honeysweet'

You will love the sweetly rich flavor and silky smoothness of Honeysweet! A smooth, buttery pear, similar in texture to the well-known Seckel pear, but larger; Honeysweet ripens to a golden russet. While it resembles a "summer"-style pear, it does require several weeks of cold storage to fully ripen after being picked mature off the tree in late summer, just after Bartlett.

Trees will set fruit without a pollinizer, but fruit will be bigger if cross-pollinated. Honeysweet is resistant to fireblight and to leaf spotting diseases, making it great for home gardens and local markets.

Pretty Good 👍

Tree arrived in great condition, but was a little disappointed that it only had 2 branches. Have ordered several tree's and this is the only one I wasn't completely happy with.
