In the months of March and April, the tree blossoms with white flowers. The fruit ripen in the autumn in the months of September and October. The fruit is edible, though not as good as the European Pear, mostly because of hard, stone like objects found in the skin. The ripe fruit falls to the ground and when it starts to rot, the smell attracts wild boars. The boars eat the fruit and distribute the seeds.
