Breda Giant Medlar

$37.99
SKU D002
Size

A native to Holland,this small, self fertile tree will grow to about 10 feet and display white flowers which produce a unique 1 inch fruit. When collected in the fall, they are then left to blett in a cool lighted place until soft and ripe. Enjoy the rich, apple cinnamon flavor scooped out with a spoon or make into a delicious jam.

Although little known in the U.S., medlars have been grown in Europe for thousands of years. The unusual 1 inch diameter 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.
