Products description

The Callery Pear (Pyrus calleryana) is a species of pear native to China. It is a deciduous tree growing to 15-20 m tall, with a conic to rounded crown, and often thorny branches. The leaves are oval, 4-7 cm long, glossy dark green above, slightly paler below. The flowers are produced in early spring before the leaves expand fully, and are white, with five petals, and about 2-3 cm diameter; they have a sickly-sweet smell that some have likened to semen, decaying crab meat, or jasmine and dog vomit. The fruit is about 2 cm diameter, hard, almost woody until softened by frost, after which it is readily taken by birds, which disperse the seeds in their droppings. In summer, the foliage is dark green and very smooth, and in autumn the leaves commonly turn brilliant colours, anything from yellow and orange to more common red, pink, purple, and bronze. Sometimes, several of these colours may be present on an individual leaf. However, the colour often occurs very late in fall, and the leaves may killed by a frost before full colour can develop.
