Introducing the Pyrus calleryana 'Aristocrat', also known as the Aristocrat Pear or Callery Pear. This beautiful tree is a deciduous species native to China, growing up to 15-20 meters tall with a conical to rounded crown. The leaves are oval and glossy dark green above, slightly paler below. In early spring, before the leaves fully expand, it produces stunning white five-petaled flowers around 2-3 cm in diameter. While some people find the smell of the flowers distasteful, the shining foliage in summer and brilliant colors in autumn, ranging from yellow to pink, purple, and bronze, are simply breathtaking.

The wood of any pear tree species, including the Aristocrat, is among the finest-textured fruitwoods. It is highly prized for making woodwind instruments and used in the production of fine furniture veneer. This variety is particularly desirable for rootstock growers as seedlings grown from it will have fewer thorns than from the species.
