Introducing the Pyrus caucasica, also known as the Caucasian Pear - a rare and exotic tree that is native to the Caucasus region. With its nearly threatened status due to habitat loss and cutting for firewood, this ancestral tree is a valuable addition to any garden or orchard. Its young plants display an abundance of prickles and serrated edged leaves, but as the plant matures, the leaves become smooth and the prickles less evident.

The fruits of the Pyrus caucasica are small, measuring between 1.5 to 3 centimeters in diameter. They possess a unique combination of being somewhat sweet yet sour, bitter, and astringent, making them a popular ingredient for the production of schnapps. Although lesser known than other pear species, the Caucasian Pear is the ancestor of many modern varieties, and its unique flavor profile offers a refreshing change from the norm.

Pyrus communis, or the European Pear, is one of the most important temperate fruits in the world, and has been the foundation for orchard pear cultivars in many countries. While the Nashi Pear and Chinese white pear are more commonly grown in eastern Asia, the Pyrus caucasica offers a unique and rare alternative that is not to be missed.

If you're looking for a unique and rare tree to add to your garden or orchard, look no further than the Pyrus caucasica Caucasian Pear. Not only will it add a touch of diversity, but you'll also be contributing to the conservation of a nearly threatened species in the wild. Don't miss out on the opportunity to enjoy the unique and delicious fruits of the Pyrus caucasica Caucasian Pear.
