Mespilus germanica 'Marron'™

This new cultivar is highly productive and produces large fruit with flavorful pulp.

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.

I don't love it.

My Marron medlar has flowered and set for me several years in a row. That's the good news. It actually turns mushy around September, ripening on the tree unlike what the literature says.

The flavor... Boring and almost unpleasant. Not awful. Clackamas county, 600 feet elevation.

I've had a medlar that was a bit better, although I still don't love it. If only we could taste all the fruit prior to planting.
