Honeysweet Pear Tree

Honeysweet Pear Tree

A flavor favorite, Honeysweet Pear bears medium-sized, brown-russet colored fruits with a super sweet, rich and spicy flavor. The smooth, creamy flesh is very aromatic, too. This exceptional pear is excellent for fresh eating, and also a delight when cooked into your favorite dessert or poached. The fruits ripen in late August and keep well in storage. Because it's one of the few self-pollinating pear trees, Honeysweet is a great choice for gardens with limited space. For top fruit production, though, we recommend planting it with another pollinator tree. Zones 5-8.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. of Fruit-Boost™ Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties (see video below), a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit--How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.
