Medlar is an unusual apple-like fruit that historically was very common though it is now somewhat unknown. Medlar Nottingham is considered the best flavoured producing a heavy crop of medium sized fruits with a pleasant caramel flavour. Excellent eaten with wine port and cheese it is now commonly used to make jelly and Medlar Cheese.

Medlars have a flat-topped weeping habit with large leathery leaves and large white flowers in spring. These are followed by large rose-hip like fruits and reddish-orange autumn leaves.

Medlar is inedible until it has begun to soften; this process called bletting and can occur while the fruit is attached to the tree after frost or can be achieved by picking the ripe fruit and storing them in a cool dry place. Either way the hard cream flesh breaks down into a soft brown pulp; it is this pulp that is eaten.
Trees are self fertile and will fruit within three years.

Crop Time: Autumn
Growing Instructions: Best grown in a warm sheltered garden; this is why they are more often seen in the south of the country.
Supplied As: 1 x 150cm Tree
