Sweet and Spicy

The first fruit hanging on our young Seckel pear tree. The smallest of all commercially grown pears and so sweet they are know as "sugar pears" Seckels are the perfect bite sized dessert pear and thought by some to be the only true American variety. No matter their provenance the sweet spicy flavor of Seckel pears is a delight fresh with mild cheese, roasted with meats or poached for dessert. I can hardly wait for harvest.
