A large fruited and heavy bearing medlar brought to the National Clonal Germplasm Repository in Corvallis Oregon from the Netherlands.

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.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Hi there! I am up in Snohomish county, Zone 7b. Would a medlar tree do ok up here? I know they produce fruit in Portland, but Portland has more heat units than we do. (alas, no pawpaws for us!)

    Medlar should produce fine in your area.
