The Perfect Fruit

Pear, One of the nature's perfect fruit

Pear is also known as Pomaceous fruit is placed in the genus Prunus. The word pear has been derived from a Greek word. Pear is known in cultivation in the cooler temperate climates since times immemorial.

They are medium-sized trees attaining height of 10-17 m with a narrow crown and some varieties are shrubby also. The leaves are arranged in alternate fashion on the branches and are 2-12 cm long. The leaves are generally glossy green or silvery hairy, oval to lanceolate. Majority of the species are deciduous but two growing in Southeast Asia are evergreen.
