This very unique and uncommon fruit has been popular in Europe since the Middle Ages. Forming an attractive, small tree growing 6-8 ft. in height, Medlar's large white flowers and striking, chestnut brown fruit are accented by long, dark green, tropical looking foliage. Medlar ripens in mid to late October, when it turns very dark brown and softens. When ripe it has the taste and texture of spiced applesauce. Medlar is self-fertile and hardy to minus 25°F.
