Seckel Pear

by Fruit Maven

If you think the partridge is in the pear tree because he passionately loves pears, then this is the fruit for you!

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★★½

Very small pear, only about two inches high and a bit tubby around the mid-section, bronze and ruby skin with white flesh

AROMA Rating: ★★★☆☆

Slightly grassy, fresh smell

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★★☆

Tight skin with meltingly cream and juicy flesh

TASTE Rating: ★★★★½

The peel has that typical dry, gritty mouth-feel that seems more like a flavor to me than a texture. The flesh is amazingly sweet with concentrated pear flavor

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★☆

This is a gorgeous and delicious little snacker. Everything about this pear makes me feel romantic. I mean it is also called the Sugar Pear. Come here Sugar! So delicious and so cute, it even looks like a heart when you slice it in half. I just want to snuggle. If seeing this pear doesn’t make your heart melt, then I dare say you may have no heart because that is just not possible.

NOTES

I was trying to find something about the partridge in the pear tree from the Twelve Days of Christmas song, when I stumbled across this fantastic lit bit of folklore. I knew I had to pass it along immediately to the many young maidens who read this site. So apparently, according to this site, which is recounting some other site, if you walk around a pear tree backwards three times on Christmas morning, then look up in to the branches, you will see an image of your future husband. My guess is that if you do this, we will have a bunch of women looking anxiously for short, squatty men with bronze skin and a weird wooden growth coming out of their head, but I could be wrong. Let me know ladies.
