Medlar tree

Medlar tree is a small with a history dating back to ancient times. This particular tree produces an abundance of small fruit which is ready for consumption when “bletted.” This means that the fruit has to turn brown, due to microbial activity, preferably on the tree. Desirable conditions for bletting are locations where there is moisture and cold temperatures. The fruit is usually ready for harvest during the late fall season. However, often the fruits are picked early when firm. Prepare the fruit by storing between water absorbant material like hay, saw dust, or peat moss. Place in the refrigerator to help increase microbial activity until the fruit becomes perfectly bletted.

Medlar trees grows wildly in Europe and Asia. In Iran, the fruits, leaves, bark and wood of the tree are used as medicines for ailments.

The Medlar tree does well near the Coast. Plant them in Malibu, Santa Monica, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Agoura Hills and in San Diego. Special care is needed when planted inland such as Los angeles. Plant where it will receive morning sun and afternoon shade and provide supplemental water to simulate the coast.
