The pear tree
Pear trees grow readily in the greener northern part of La Palma. The pear trees flower in spring and have fruit in late summer. In mild winters they may flower a second time apparently because they think it is spring again, but the winter flowers seldom develop fruit.

The Nispero
The Nispero is a type of Japanese Mispel (Eriobotrya japonica) which grow wild in most parts of La Palma. Its fruit are edible, but the seeds are not. When they are ripe the fruit turn orange and when they start to become slightly soft they are ripe. The plum shaped fruit contains up to 5 stone (something like a conker) with a thin layer of edible flesh. The fruit is often used to make a liquer from aguadiente, the local firewater. It can also be used for making jam.
