please identify the plant in the picture. It from the park where people used to walkWarsaw. Most probably it is Pyrus sp. I taste the fruit which was extremely savour and deep purple red. It had very small seeds like an apple. The plant in No.22. mail was also standing near by. It was also savour but not that much and having apple’s flavour as well. And it’s seed were small.


I hope Malus prunifolia
