    Default Nombre cientifico de la Pera

    Hola,

    Estoy tratando de indentificar el nombre cientifico de la Pera que que crece en la zona del cibao.

    En el campo de mis abuelos (Cavia, Puerto Plata), la fruta existe pero no puedo relacionar esta fruta con apples, Cherries or pears. This fruit in apperance looks like a plum but it has several seeds.

    When the fruit matures it get some brown spots.

    Does anyone know which fruit I'm talking about?

    LOL. Thanks but not.

    La Pera has several big seeds inside. Probably four or five.

    But in size is very similar to the guajava.

    I found a pic on the internet

    DR Pera

    The autor says is called: "pyrus communis" but when I do a search I find different fruit.

    It could be a mistake

    when you say its like a plum - do you mean the inside, outside shape or colour or all of them - I think of a plum as being purple but the picture shows a small green thing

    Thanks everybody but somebody already told me the name. "Casimiroa Edulis" It's also called: Zapote blanco.

    I wish I could find this fruit in Canada. LOL This fruit is one of my favorites.

    White Sapote - Casimiroa edulis
