Medlar


Medlar (Mespilus germanica)

It is hardy to zone 6, and it flowers from May to June, and the fruits ripen in November. The flowers are pollinated by Bees. The plant is self-fertile.

Succeeds in most soils, preferring one that is moist and well-drained. Prefers a sunny position and a fertile soil. Occasionally cultivated for its edible fruit, there are some named varieties.

The fruit can be harvested in late autumn after it has been bletted, before it can be eaten raw. At this stage the flesh turns from white to brown, becomes very soft and is quite sweet that somewhat resembles a date. The fruit of the wild species is up to 25mm in diameter, though some cultivars can be 65mm in diameter.
