Mespilus germanica ‘Nottingham’ is a late-season deciduous tree with large leaves which colour well in Autumn and white flowers followed by edible fruits. Nottingham Medlar trees are commonly flat topped with a spreading, almost weeping habit.
Between mid-October and early November, the fruit should part easily from the branches and are ready to be picked and stored for several weeks until the flesh turns brown and soft, the flavour of this fruit is not dissimilar from apple sauce.
These days Medlar trees are more commonly grown for their ornamental value opposed to the high price they would once go for. Nottingham is the only variety that is still available for commercial growing.
