    Nispero, nipero and mespel are terms referring to certain fruit-bearing trees, or better said to their fruit:
    * Common Medlar (Mespilus germanica), the origin of the term (called Mispel in many Germanic languages, mispeli in Finnish, nespolo in Italian, etc.)
    * Loquat (Eriobotrya japonica), widely traded under these names today, in particular in temperate countries
    * Sapodilla (Manilkara zapota), often known by these terms in tropical countries such as Latin America
