Macrocarpa Medlar

The largest of the Medlars, Macrocarpa fruit can be up to 2 1/2 inches in diameter. The fruit is flavorful. The tree habit is compact.

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.
