Honeysweet Pear Tree

Super-sweet "sugar-type" pear with a rich, spicy flavor and exceptional quality. One of the few that is self-pollinating—does not need another variety for good fruiting. Keeps well in storage; ripens late August. Zones 5-8.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, 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.
