This weekend I harvested the medlars on our tree.
- Medlars can be harvested at the end of October and through November.
- Once harvested the fruit should be left in a box in a cool dry place until they turn a dark reddish brown and become soft and juicy.
- This ripening process is known as “bletting” the medlars.
- When the medlars are ripe the fruit can be used to make medlar jam, jelly, wine or cheese.
