The Medlar fruit is a rare tree fruit that has been recently available to plant and grow in the United States.  Medlars have been known for centuries in Europe and are probably the most cold hardy fruits that can be grown in America.  The chocolate brown medlar fruit matures in the fall and can remain on the tree virtually undamaged by the cold weather remaining attached to the tree until late December.  The taste of the Medlar involves a complex mixture of flavors, indescribable in words, and the fruit ripens into a globe about the size of a large plum.

Watch one of our many free videos so you can see the actual beauty of the amazing Medlar fruit that grows on the Medlar Trees every year at Aaron's Farm. Contact us if you have any questions about pollination, mature size, or even the flavor the fruit itself. Most wouldn't think upstate New York would have such a wide variety of fruit to grow but indeed they do. The Royal Medlar Tree is perfect for the climate in upstate New York and we ship these trees that far north every year. These trees are perfect for hunters and winter lovers alike due to the fact they ripen and are eaten in the winter. Plant your Medlar Tree in full sun and watch it ripen in the winter. Once a frost has set in you will begin to see the outer layer of skin begin to shrivel and this is when the fruit is at its prime to be eaten.

If you're looking to grow something a bit more rare than your average backyard fruit tree, the Medlar Tree could be a great option for you. They thrive in USDA Zones 4-9 and survive temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit. Although they will grow as far south as Florida they require a frost to settle in order to ripen.
