Description

Semi-dwarf on OHxF333 rootstock.

  • Zones: 5-8
  • Chill hours: 500
  • Bloom Time: Mid-Season to Late Mid-Season (Based on typical Central Valley California weather)
  • Harvest: August 10 - September 1
  • Looks: Smaller fruit with russeted brown skin.
  • Personality: Sweet, flavorful, aromatic, spicy flavor makes this pear a connoisseur favorite. Crunchy flesh.
  • Facts of note: The petite size is perfect for a snack and is great for children who enjoy the sweet flavor. Resists fireblight. Seckel is thought to be the only truly American commercial pear variety. The variety originated from a pear growing wild in the early 1800s near Philadelphia.
  • Pollination: Self-fruitful in most western US climates, may need another pear elsewhere.

European pears are late blooming, tolerant of heavy wet soils, and a good choice for many areas. Susceptible to codling moth and some to fire blight. Plant at least two varieties for best results. Harvest 3rd year. On OHxF333 semi-dwarf rootstock. Trees left unpruned reach 2/3 of standard (about 12-18'). By pruning, keep any tree to any size.

Check out our Fruit Tree Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January. If you'd like us to split your shipments, please contact us at (800) 784-1722 or orderdesk@groworganic.com. Additional shipping charges will apply.

Guarantee

Limited Guarantee for Dormant Trees & Plants (When Planted in the Ground by April 1st)

Claim Deadline is June 1st (Claims placed after June 1st will be denied.) Please note: Our trees will come to you topped off at approximately 3 ft. in height to put the tree’s stored energy into root development vs. foliage production.

What We Guarantee
Our only guarantee is that your dormant tree/plant will arrive in good, viable condition and will leaf out by May 15th (historically 98% of our trees do). This guarantee is only available to customers who purchased their tree/plant directly from us, and who planted their tree/plant in the ground by April 1st (or temporarily in a pot if the ground in their zone was still frozen solid).

What We Cannot Guarantee
We cannot guarantee that your tree/plant remains alive & healthy, or bears fruit, as there are too many variables beyond our control in order to do so (i.e. soil preparation, planting, fertilization, weed & pest control, adequate irrigation and/or drainage, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your zone, proper choice of pollinator, etc).

How to Request a Credit
If your tree/plant does not leaf out by May 15th, please contact us as soon as possible (but no later than June 1st) and we will issue you a credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of your tree/plant (excluding shipping).*

(*) We reserve the right to not issue credit for items already replaced. We also reserve the right to require photographic evidence of the condition of your tree/plant and/or a scratch test. The scratch test consists of checking for green under the bark a few inches over the graft (please watch our video titled Bare Root (Dormant) Warranty for more information on this simple procedure). If the scratch test reveals a brown cambium, the tree/plant is dead or dying.
