Medlars produce large white flowers in the spring followed by russety rose-hip type fruits and magnificent orange-red autumn leaf colour. The fruits should be stored for several weeks and eaten after the texture has gone soft, at which stage they develop a lovely caramel-like flavour.  The fruits are excellent eaten raw with wine, port and cheese and can also be used to make an exquisite amber jelly for game and other meats. Medlar trees are hardy but will crop best if positioned in an open, sunny site. With the exception of Sibley's Patio Medlar, trees are supplied bare-rooted and will be 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch. Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

We are now taking orders for Autumn 2019 delivery. Please click here for our range of pot grown medlar trees, available for planting now.

 

Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order. All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
