That's what I call them, but their real name is Seckel pears. They are tiny, but incredibly sweet. My tree produces only a very few of them.

Oh, the cinnamon gum -- I didn't have a coin in my pocket, so I grabbed the gum to give an idea of scale. The little blue plate is 6.5" in diameter.

Andy, I think all pears need to be picked unripe and allowed to ripen off the tree. I picked mine that way, and they ripened perfectly on the kitchen counter.

Oh, I just LOVE Seckle pears! I always look forward to seeing them in the stores around this time. Of course with store bought ones, patience is a virtue, because they're usually rock-hard. So you bring them home and tuck them in a paper bag that you fold up the top on. In a couple of days they are nice, ripe and sweet. Now does the cinnamon gum give them extra bite? Thanks Plum.

Haha, it's all Plum's fault! :-o

Glad you cleared that up for Bill, Gayle.

Pear season is here already. Fall must be in the air.

Bill, no wonder--pear trees don't grow plums. :-)

Lucky you, they look very tasty, thank you.

They are as cute as can be, Plum! The odd Vietnamese pear trees at my apartment don't have a single plum this year. There must have been a late freeze that I'm not remembering. But it's no great loss to me: they are no good for eating--hard and not at all sweet.
