Seckel pears have a sweet, delicate flavor with crisp, firm flesh. Milder in flavor than many other pears, the Seckel is best paired with foods that don't overpower it.


Petite little Seckel pears are cute, about 3 inches long and 2 inches wide. The smooth olive green skin may sport a red blush over much of the entire fruit. As it ripens, the skin loses its glossiness and the red darkens.


Storing Seckel pears:

Keep Seckel pears in the coldest part of the fridge where they will keep for up to a week, depending on how ripe they were when purchased.


Seckel pears are best when eaten on the firm side. Ripen the pears at room temperature for a day or two, but once once ripe, they should be eaten at once.


Serving hints:

Seckel pears are wonderful when poached, baked or simply fresh eaten out of hand. Try them with chocolate or mild, nutty cheeses, roasted and served with meats, or poached with white wine, honey and spices for dessert.



Seckel pears are available from mid-September into December.



Brandied Cheese, Walnut, and Pear Crostini
This is a truly elegant holiday dish, especially when paired with a bowl of fresh grapes. It's rich and hot and absolutely marvelous served with a dry white wine in front of a crackling fire.

Rhubarb, Pear, Apple and Raspberry Tart
This is not your usual old-fashioned rhubarb pie.
Layers of firm, toothsome apples & pears, nuggets of tart, tender rhubarb and a scattering of ruby-red raspberries make this tart a summery wonderland of tastes & textures. The crisp, rich shortbread-like crust is so much better than anything you can buy pre-made, that it's worth a little effort.

This tart stands on its own merits, but top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a dollop of soft whipped cream or a couple of spoonfuls of thick Greek yogurt, and you've got a dessert to remember.
