Translation:
A kind of tree producing fruits on the upper branches, resembling small apples.[1]

Greek Original:
Ὄα: ἀκροδρύων εἶδος, μήλοις μικροῖς ἐμφερές. ὀπώρα, ἡ ὄα.
Notes:
Sorbus domestica. Manuscripts of Theophrastus have various spellings of the tree-name: see LSJ s.v. ὄα (A), at web address 1.
[1] Same glossing in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon and Photius omicron1 Theodoridis; similarly Hesychius omicron2 and elsewhere.
[2] The point of this addendum to the entry is unclear. The fruit should be το ὄον (also variously spelled), 'service-berry' or 'sorb-apple', mentioned at Plato, Symposium 190D. For opora in a more general sense cf. omicron 481, omicron 482, omicron 483, omicron 484.
