Large, super-sweet "sugar pear" has a rich spicy flavor and holds well in storage. Naturally small trees are easy to maintain. Ripens late August. Zones 5-8.
Note: Plants will ship in Spring.

Four years ago, we planted two Honey Sweet pear trees. The first year, one was decimated by deer. So much for pears, we thought. Last year the remaining tree bloomed heavily. Didn't pay much attention except to access for damage/disease, etc. (We planted two more last year (2012) but they of course did not bloom. Surprise! About a month after blooming, looked up into the foliage and- loads of small pears! By September, we had about 5 dozen total half-size very delicious sweet pears. (We were in a drought and possibly that accounted for the smaller size, but we are anticipating another pear crop this year!
This was the most ridiculous stick I've ever bought, but we planted it anyway. Prepping, we dug a 6x6' hole and filled it with topsoil. No joke, it grew 18 inches the first year and already a good 5 inches already this year (may 18th, 2011). Beautiful leaves, smooth appealing bark, makes me wish I'd planted three more! Highly recommended!
