Breda Giant medlar is a classic, productive variety from Holland. Medlars are typically revered for their ornamental value and for their delicious, unique fruit. Breda Giant medlar fruit is about 1-2 inches in diameter, soft brown in color and born from large, beautiful white flowers. It has a texture and flavor reminiscent of cinnamon-applesauce and can be eaten fresh, cooked, roasted or in pies and jelly. Also great for snacks and preserves. Medlar Fruit is hard at harvest time and must be allowed to ripen for a few weeks in a cool, light place where it becomes soft and juicy. This process is called bletting.
