"My Belle de Boskoop apple tree arrived safe and well and I am delighted with it. It was very well protected for its journey and is now planted in the ground."

Medlar Trees

  • Medlars not only produce very unusual fruit of medieval origin but they are also beautiful flowering trees, the blossom is reminiscent of wild blush pink rose flowers.
  • The Autumn brings a perfect seasonal combination of russet brown gold fruits set amongst the foliage of strong red and gold autumnal hues.
  • The unusual fruit can be used in a number of ways to flavour jellies or used in desserts.
  • However - We think the best way to enjoy them is to blet them (leave until just over ripe), light a roaring log fire, bring some good Stilton cheese to room temperature, poor a glass of port and enjoy!
  • Easy to grow trees, forming a shrubby shaped tree to around 15 – 20ft
