Medlar Trees

 

Medlar Tree - Westeveldt

An extremely attractive and quite fascinating tree (a relative of the quince family and a good pollinator for pears), with large, glossy leaves, beautiful white blossom in springtime and pretty bronze foliage in autumn. The curious flattish fruit are ready to pick in October and should then be stored for a few weeks (known as bletting) to fully develop their truffle-like flavour. A fine accompaniment to wine and cheese! Pollination group 4.

Price: £19.99 More information & to buy from Dobies

Medlar : Nottingham

Considered the best flavoured Medlar, producing a heavy crop of medium sized fruits with a pleasant caramel flavour. Excellent eaten with wine, port and cheese, although are more commonly used to make into a Medlar Cheese.
