We've got two Medlar trees in the front garden, well in the front lawn really, they have both been in the ground for two or three years and this is part of the crop from one of them.
This tree in question fruits a little bit later than the other so we assume it is a different variety although the crop from both this year, given the size of the trees, has been huge, easily a bucket full from each small tree.
This crop of Medlars will become Medlar Jelly once they have 'bletted', basically they begin to rot. Sounds lovely doesn't it. The final jelly is crystal clear and amber in colour and delicious with cheese and cooked meats or the Sunday roast.
There's more seasonal treats to come too.
