Seen first time on plant. How tempting! just to be plucked and eat. Why last photo shows red colour? Different variety or same turns red/


Yes it is a different cultivar ‘Red pear’

Rosaceae week_Prunus cerasoides (?)_RKC02_03102011:
Looks like Prunus cerasoides to me.
Pl validate the ID.
Loc.: Upper Siang district (ca 550msl), Arunachal Pradesh
Date: March, 2008.


Yes … Our delicious cherries.


Looks different from other images at Prunus cerasoides



This is not Prunus. It is some Pyrus sp.

Attaching my Blog article on Prunus cerasoudes.

Thanks, …, Wonderfully documented.
Pl. also check Prunus cerasus L. for … posted images.

Multiple stigmas are visible in one of the flowers. Leaf shape and texture is another hint. So, I thought of Pyrus sp.

Another hint is bark texture. It is somewhat smooth and splitting horizontally in Prunus species.

that bark splitting is a very good point


I think Pyrus communis as suggested by leaves, Pyrus sp. by …

Looks like Malus domestica


Please wait, this could well be Pyrus sp., leaves and long pedicels in first photograph suggest that.


Looks Pyrus communis only

A huge tree seen near the lake at Sattal.
Flowering season was almost over and I could only get a small bunch of white flowers.
Kindly id.


Perhaps Pyrus communis


I imagine how to differentiate between Pyrus pashia and Pyrus communis ?


In P. pashia fruits are smaller, globular, unpalatable and with white dots. It is a naturally occurring species with relatively smaller trees. P.communis has larger, smooth and globular or pyriform fruits; a cultivated species here. Leaves in P.pashia are ovate lanceolate whereas in P.communis they are elliptic.
Having said these difference, it is difficult to differentiate these two in flowering stage when leaves are very young or yet to develop.
Despite of similarities and differences P.pashia (Mehal) is extensively used as a root stock for grafting scions of P.communis. Thus developing a horticultural chimera; root of one species stem, lvs and fruits of another!


Thanks for the information. Yeah I was also talking about flowers 🙂


Thanks for the information to differentiate between the two species.
This particular tree was a huge one.

I feel that Pyrus communis flower look different than the flowers in these pictures.
