The name of this very large cultivar translates to 'Huge Evreinoff' and refers to the 3" yellow/brown, fruit with pinkish brown flesh. One French collector of medlar trees described the taste as 'pleasant, well balanced between sweet and almost syrupy with the edge of acidity that delights connoisseurs.'

Evreinoff.

Although little known in the U.S., medlars have been grown in Europe for thousands of years. The unusual round fruits are collected in the fall, after the first frosts. When picked, the fruits are much too hard to eat immediately. If allowed to ripen for a few weeks in a cool lighted place they undergo a process called ‘bletting’ and become soft, spicy and very rich. Enjoy the cinnamon-apple sauce flavor scooped out with a spoon.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Do I need to have to Medlar, or just one is enough? I noticed your website says self pollinating but I hear from others that at least two are needed. Would you clarify it for me? Thanks. Ed

    In our experience medlar does fine on it's own. With nearly all self-fertile plants the yield is improved with cross pollination.

Arrived perfect!

Very happy with the tree. Very nice shape and the buds awakened the minute I stuck it in the ground. Appears to be adjusting nicely.
