In a Nutshell:
* This tree is native to the Caucasus region where it is nearly threatened by habitat loss and cutting for firewood.
* It is an ancester of many modern pear varieties.
* The young plants have many prickles and serrated edged leaves.

The leaves become smooth with age and prickles less evident.
* The fruits are 1.5 to 3 centimeters in diameter and

are somewhat sweet yet sour, bitter and astringent. They are sometimes used in the production of schnapps.
