var. oblongifolia (Spach) Bean

P. oblongifolia Spach

This represents another extreme, with oblong or oval leaves, rounded at the base, the stalk 1 to 1{1/2} in. long. Fruits yellowish, tinged with red on the sunny side, considerably larger than in P. amygdaliformis. It is common in Provence, and known there as the “Gros Perrussier”. Perhaps a hybrid between P. amygdaliformis and P. nivalis.
