They are deciduous, small to medium trees with a medium growth rate. The shape depends on the cultivar of course, with 'Cleveland Select', the Chanticleer pear being pretty common and one of the more narrow ones.
Flowers are 1/2", white in 3" diameter clusters. Not the best smell. This picture is upside down.
Fruit is a very small asian pear, rounded, golden color with lots of lenticels.
Wonderful fall color on all of them, some sort of orange and reds.

'Cleveland Select' on El Salto just past Livermore on Depot Hill.
