The origins of wild pear in Ireland is unclear but is most likely a ‘feral’ variety of the closely related domestic pear, Pyrus communis, with records of cultivation in Ireland since the early 1600’s.
The wild pear is a interesting tree – it belongs to the Rosaceae (rose) family with such notable ‘fruit tree’ characteristics that is typical of many Rosaceae trees.
Wild pears typically produce small 1-4cm diameter pears that are often hard – until they ripen in later summer and early autumn.
Leaves and the bark are commonly used for healing purposes.
