The Giant Medlar (Mespilus germanica)

In 2018, we planted two medlar trees (Breda varietal), and we were lucky enough to have fruit in the first year! The picture below shows what a medlar fruit looks like. The fruit, after harvesting, needs to blet (cold cure) and then it will soften. The taste is similar to apple sauce. We only had enough this year to prototype a liqueur, but hopefully, 2019 will bring a larger harvest from these cold-hardy trees!
