Used to love these as a child when they were ripe,not seen a tree for years.Do you use them for cooking.

Resi just googled the medlars seems they make good jelly they add lemon and sugar and apparently sets well,they use it to accompany cheese and the like,there are a number of receipts to be had.Makes my mouth water and brings back memories of 60+ years ago.
