Pyrus coronaria, Linn. (Malus fragrans, Rehd. Malus coronaria, Mill.). Closely related to P. glaucescens, but differing in less deeply lobed more elongated lvs. which are green and not glaucous beneath at maturity, glabrous calyx-tube, and the fr. being strongly ribbed at the deeply sunken apex. N. Y. to Ala. B.M. 2009. B.R. 651. S.S. 4:167 (all as P. coronaria). R.H. 1884, p. 104 (as P. microcarpa coronaria). Gn. 29, p. 395; 34, p. 206.—The fr., which is produced in abundance, was often buried by the early settlers for use in the spring, when its acerbity was largely extracted; and it was sometimes used for cider. It is also useful for jellies and preserves. The species was probably never intro. into cult, for its frs., although it has been long grown for ornament and under domestication the apples are often twice their natural size. Var. elongata, Bailey (M.fragrans var. elongata, Rehd. M. coronaria var. elongata, Rehd.). Lvs. narrow-triangular and distinctly incised-serrate or lobed. N. Y. to N. C. There is a form with semi-double fls. and one (var. aucubaefolia, Bailey) with variegated lvs. An attractive species. For recent discussions of the nomenclature of this species and No. 38, see Jackson, G.C. III. 55, p. 294, and Rehder, M.D., 1914, pp. 260-61.
