Possibly the perfect patio fruit tree for the smaller garden, the Medlar tree will form a dome shape that will flower in spring and form unusual looking fruits that develop throughout the summer. Within a couple of seasons you should get 30 or so Medlars each autumn. The fruits will ripen once picked and become soft – the ripening process is referred to as ‘Bletting’. Once fully ripe in mid-late autumn, the soft, sweet flesh can be eaten as it is or made in to a jelly preserve – it makes the perfect accompaniment to savoury dishes and goes brilliantly with cheese.
Medlars have been somewhat overlooked in the rush to grow fruit in the home garden. Yet their most unusual looking fruit make great jellies, jams, and sauces, and they have the most beautiful pure-white spring blossom and attractive leathery green leaves in summer too.
Hardy and self-fertile, it really is an easy winner. This naturally compact beauty has been grafted onto a very dwarfing Pear rootstock, so it will stay very manageable in size for many years. It will look fabulous in a pot on your patio or terrace, but will be equally at home planted in to your garden soil in a sunny spot too.
