The pear (/?p??r/) tree and shrub are a species of genus Pyrus /?pa?r?s/, in the family Rosaceae, bearing the pomaceous fruit of the same name. Several species of pear are valued for their edible fruit and juices while others are cultivated as trees.
The pear is native to coastal and mildly temperate regions of the Old World, from western Europe and north Africa east right across Asia. It is a medium-sized tree, reaching 10?17 metres (33?56 ft) tall, often with a tall, narrow crown; a few species are shrubby.
The leaves are alternately arranged, simple, 2?12 centimetres (0.79?4.72 in) long, glossy green on some species, densely silvery-hairy in some others; leaf shape varies from broad oval to narrow lanceolate. Most pears are deciduous, but one or two species in southeast Asia are evergreen. Most are cold-hardy, withstanding temperatures between ?25 ?C (?13 ?F) and ?40 ?C (?40 ?F) in winter, except for the evergreen species, which only tolerate temperatures down to about ?15 ?C (5 ?F).
