Medlars are a somewhat old-fashioned fruit in today's supermarket world, but are a spectacular and rewarding specimen tree.
A fabulous Spring blossoming tree, it produces gorgeous pink blossom, and in late Autumn unusual fruits, not exactly a thing of beauty, and which are tart is eaten from the tree, but sweeten beautifully if picked and ripened for a few weeks, and can keep for Months in cool and dry conditions. They then make excellent jellies, as well as cooking well in mixed fruit pies and puddings though, fresh from the trees.
Something really different, yet easy for the productive orchard garden!
