The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source.

The golden-toned wood of pear produced wands of splendid magical powers. Possessors of pear wands were, in the experience of the learned wandmaker Garrick Ollivander, usually popular and well-respected, and he never knew of single instance where a pear wand had been discovered in the possession of a Dark Witch or Wizard.
The English word "pear" is probably from Common West Germanic pera, probably a loanword of Vulgar Latin pira, the plural of pirum, akin to Greek ἄπιος apios (from Mycenaean ápisos), which is likely of Semitic origin. The place name Perry and Pharisoulopol can indicate the historical presence of pear trees. The term "pyriform" is sometimes used to describe something which is "pear-shaped".
