The pear seedlings, after plums and apples, are among the most represented fruit species in Serbia.
It belongs to the group of profitable fruit trees. Pear production in our country is still scarce, so good prices are regularly achieved. The cost of growing a pear plantation, as well as regular production, is much lower than that of an apple. Investments in pear planting can be repaid in 5-7 years.
Pear is a genus of woody plants of the family Rosaceae, whose fruit of the same name are used in human nutrition. Species of this genus grow in temperate regions of Europe, Asia and Africa. The trees are of medium height (10-17m), mostly deciduous, with simple and alternately arranged leaves (2-12cm long)). The fruit is a special form of berry - pomum, with single-layered (in species from Sect. Pyrus) or multilayered epidermis (in species in Sect. Pashia) and often numerous sclereids (stone cells). Taxonomically, the genus divides into the two sections mentioned.
"Wild" species of the genus Pyrus can hybridize, similar to other genera in the Apple (Maloideae) subfamily, but the natural habitats of these species do not overlap and thus prevent the occurrence of hybridization. With the neolithic spread of agriculture, humans artificially combine the "wild" species and begin with domestication. There are two names for domesticated (domestic) pears - Pyrus communis (European) and Pyrus pyrifolia (Far Eastern).
These two species (and their cultivars) originated through two independent processes of domestication, before 500 B.C. Some cultivars of European domestic pear may have been created by hybridization of P. communis with P. reqelii.
Pears are used for the production of a very high quality brandy - pear (perry), and the most famous pear brandy is of the William variety. In addition to brandy, pears are also used in the preparation of stewed drinks, jelly, marmalade, preserve, as well as an additive for various fruit cakes.
