PEAR, COMMON (Pyrus communis)
Enlarge Picture Enlarge picture


Medium-sized, columnar, deciduous tree, occasionally thorny, with glossy green leaves which often colour well in autumn. In early spring it is covered by a snowfall of white blossom, sometimes tinged pink, then setting small edible fruits for autumn. It suckers freely so is excellent planted in a hedgerow as a small tree. Long cultivated in Great Britain, but unfortunately not common today. For more ornamental varieties see Pear Chanticleer or Weeping Silver Pear, and for fruiting varieties see the fruit section.
TREE 30ft x 15ft (9m x 4.6m) in 20 years, ultimate height 50ft (15m).
