Pyruscommunis is a fruit that has its origins in China and Asia. It is a plant that is characterised by delicious, soft, fruits that are edible throughout the world. It is a known fact that this fruit grows well in temperate regions. In the USA, Pyruspyrifolia is another variety that's grown successfully. Some Asian pear varieties include Chinese Sand pear, Apple pear, Patharnakh and Gola pear, and these differ from each other in shape and colour. The purpose of this paper is to address pointers on harvesting Pyruscommunis L and P. pyrifolia in moderate to cold climates.
