ABOUT WOODY PEAR (Xylomelum occidentale)

Woody pear is generally a small tree growing to 5 to 8 m tall, with a short bole that can occasionally reach 30 cm in diameter.

The large woody fruit is pear shaped, hence the common name. Heartwood is a dark reddish colour with a decorative figure and the sapwood a contrasting pale cream colour.

The tree is not commercially harvested.
