Medlar

The common medlar ( M. germanica ) is a small, much-branched, deciduous, spinous tree known for its edible fruits. These are available in autumn and winter after the tree has lost its leaves and they resemble a wrinkled yellowish-brown pear. The fruit of the common medlar is subglobose to oblong, 4–8 cm long, and 4–8 cm broad. The skin has a rough surface, similar to that of the related loquat. The flowers are white or pink-tinged, with five petals, and produce a brown globular fruit with leafy persistent sepals. The fruit is not fit to eat immediately after picking. The fruit matures, however, in autumn or early winter; it is too tart and astringent until then. When ready for consumption, the mesocarp is translucent and jelly-like, with a rose-colored tinge; the aroma of its slightly gritty inner flesh is vaguely apple-like (which can be misleading when one first tries it — not apple, but a rose hip -like the taste). The fruit contains large brown seeds, about 1 cm in diameter, that resemble coffee beans. The fruit can be used in many ways. To ripen the fruit it's best to leave them at room temperature for a few days until they are soft enough, so you can cut them open and scoop out the flesh which is now brown and mushy. The flavor of ripe medlars is unusual but very enjoyable, with hints of date and banana. Medlars can be used to replace ingredients in recipes that call for apples or pears. They can be eaten raw and make a great filling for pies and crumbles with apple and pear, too. The seeds will soften if left in the fruit overnight. The fruit is not fit to eat immediately after picking. The flesh quickly turns brown and mushy, but the skin (which becomes very hard) remains intact for some time. At first, because of its unripe smell, it's as if you wouldn't even want to try this fruit, but as soon as your taste buds give in the flavor will be the most unforgettable experience.
