Pyrus pashia
Like its near relative, the cultivated pear (Pyrus communis), the fruits of Pyrus pashia owe their distinctive gritty texture to the presence of stone cells. These specialised cells with extra-thick walls are present in clusters throughout the flesh of the fruit and its skin. This fruit is grittier than other Pyrus species; it is edible when bletted, as the sour flesh becomes sweet when half rotten. Juice from the fruit is used locally as medicine for animals and people. This small tree is found throughout the Himalayas, including Nepal, where the leaves are cut for fodder and the wood is used to make walking sticks. RBGE is working with Nepali partners on projects supporting the effective management of Nepal’s plant resources, promoting their conservation and enhancing sustainable livelihoods.

تماماً مثل الكمثرى المزروعة (بيروس كومونيس)، يعودُ سبب القوام القوي والمميّز الذي تتمتّع به ثمار بيروس كومونيس لوجود الخلايا الحجرية. تتواجد هذه الخلايا المتخصّصة ذات الجُدران السميكة في مجموعاتٍ في لبّ الثمرة وقشرتها. تُعتبر هذه الفاكهة أكثرَ خشونةً من أنواع بيروس الأخرى كما أنّها صالحةٌ للأكل عند تقشيرها، حيث يصبحُ اللب الحامض حلواً عندما يصبح نصفه فاسداً. يُستخدم عصير الفاكهة محلياً كدواءٍ للحيوانات والبشر. تنمو هذه الشجرة الصغيرة في جميع أنحاء جبال الهيمالايا، بما في ذلك النيبال، حيث تُقطع أوراقها لتُستخدم في العَلف والخشب المُستعمَل في صنع العصي. يتعاون القيّمون على الحديقة النباتية الملكية في إدنبرة مع شركاء نيباليين في مشاريع تدعمُ الإدارة الفعّالة للموارد النباتية في النيبال وتعزيز الحفاظ عليها وتعزيز سُبل العيش المستدامة.
