New to me.
I read about it in this catalog, http://www.treesofantiquity.com/
medlar is an old fashioned type of fruit.
Growing in climates that get down to -25 degrees.
"Taste of yesteryear.... revered for it's ornamental value, delicious unique fruit.
Texture and flavor reminiscent of spiced applesauce and pear".
"Medlar fruit is about 2 inches in diameter, soft brown in color, and born from large , beautiful white flowers".
'It can be eaten fresh, cooked, roasted or in pies and jellies".
Upon further research, I found that a lot of people make jelly with Medlar fruit.
Many people commented what an amazing thing it is, that the jelly turns out such a beautiful rosy color, when it is made from brown fruit.
We are striving to grow heirloom varieties of plants on our homestead.
Including , trees, shrubs, flowers and garden plants.
In the Spring, we are putting together and order from this catalog (see above for link), and I would appreciate any opinions on ordering Medlar trees.
Has any one grown Medlar?
Tasted Medlar fruit?
Tasted Medlar jelly?
Thanks so much for your thoughts and opinions about Medlar fruit.
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm grateful that the landfill is open today, and more grateful that Brooke and Spencer were able to get a truck load of yard debris, and old sidewalk concrete taken to the landfill.
~I'm grateful that my sweet husband and I had a chance to go for an ATV ride last night, and more grateful that we beat the rain storm home.
