Product details

Mespilus germanica, known as Medlar, has been around since Roman times with its fruit considered a great delicacy by some when very ripe or ‘bletted’.

It forms into a small round headed tree that produces a mass of pretty white flowers in the spring and its fruits by late summer.

It thrives on most soils but doesn’t like it excessively wet.

Green foliage mostly turns yellow but sometimes orange in the autumn.

Mespilus germanica makes a lovely orchard or garden tree.

Mature Height: 3-5m
