Smaller fruit than Dutch, but considered the best flavoured medlar for fresh eating. A pretty ornamental tree. Blooms in late spring with large flowers resembling single white roses. Fruit is eaten when soft, generally after a frost and has a mild flavour similar to a pear. Self - fertile.

I have always loved the idea of growing Medlars but am yet to have fruit but I have a lovely tree.

Interesting looking fruit that makes a great Jelly for toast and eaten after bletting.
