BiologyIn the shaded conditions in which it grows, this plant reproduces by suckering. Only in places where it receives enough light such as hedgerows or in woodland glades does it flower and bear fruit. Plymouth pear flowers later than wild pears, usually around late April or May, with a spectacular show of pink-tinged blossoms and purple stamens. The small, inedible fruit are usually about 15 mm in diameter.
