Pyrus nivalis

Pyrus nivalis, more commonly known as the "snow pear", is a type of pear that grows naturally from south-east Europe to western Asia. It primarily grows in open areas where there is some sun. Like most pears, it produces fruit that can be eaten raw or cooked and has a mild sour taste. The plant usually grows in temperatures slightly below 15° Celsius. The plant itself is very colorful and may grow to a height of up to 10 meters and a width of about 8 meters. It is a very hardy plant that is able to withstand a small supply of water or very high or low temperatures.
