Other Trees

‘MEDLAR’ – Nottingham    £20.00

This unusual fruit should either be left on the tree until after the first frosts, or stored in sawdust, until soft, this is known as bletting. Then the flesh can be scooped out with a small spoon, eat with wine and cheese, or for Medlar jelly. The tree has a attractive semi-weeping habit, with large beautiful white flowers in spring, leaves turn a nice copper colour in Autumn. Self-fertile.

‘QUINCE’    Meeches Prolific £20.00

Meeches Prolific is one of the most popular varieties of quince grown in the UK. Unlike many other varieties it gives a good regular crop in the British climate. It produces attractive large slightly pink blossom in late spring. The fruit is quite large and pear shaped. It ripens in October turning a golden yellow colour and developing a strong quince aroma. It has a sharp flavour and is excellent for making quince jelly.

‘MULBERRY’ – Morus Nigra   £18.00

Wonderful tree that is slow to establish but long term will produce fruit similar in looks to a Raspberry but with a more intense juicy flavour. The fruit is very delicate and falls from the tree when ripe and needs eating straight away, that’s the reason you don’t see Mulberries in the shops.
