Medlar has been described as tasting like rich applesauce with hints of wine.  This was a fruit that was very popular in the middle ages. The Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne required medlars to be planted in all of his estates.  Shakespeare mentioned the fruit is several of his plays.

These trees were grafted in Spring of 2019.  They are smaller than other trees we have for sale, and were grafted low on the rootstock so that the graft union can be planted below the ground.  This is due to the fact that Medlars have weak graft unions and so will need to form their own roots rather than rely on the rootstock.  These will be sent as bareroot trees while still dormant in the Spring of 2020.
