I have S. domestica here. The fresh fruit is crisp, juicy, and incredibly
astringent. However, even a good bump or a small mark on the fruit
apparently releases enzymes that blet the fruit in a hurry as it will become
edible in just a few hours. After a day or two it takes on a flavor that
makes me think of brandy.

There are some large specimens at the Seattle Botanical Gardens. The fruit
is quite beautiful. Like a head of elderberries, maybe 10-15 fruits size of
a cherry, some shaped like little pears with blush on the cheek, some like
little apples. They're not bad tasting, but not as good as a pear.
Interesting strong flavor, pear-like texture. Tree must be 40 ft. But
we've had trouble growing them in the heat of middle TN. Fungus disease and
apple borers down on the trunk. Hector Black zone 6 middle tn.
