Pyrus xerophila is a species of flowering plant in the genus Pyrus found in China.[2] It is a probable hybrid species resulting from crosses between Pyrus pashia (Himalayan pear), Pyrus ussuriensis (Manchurian pear), and the western domestic pear, brought together by travelers along the Silk Road.[3] It is used as rootstock for cultivated pears, and the fruit are collected and eaten by local people.[4]
