More Meddling!

We harvested twice as many medlars this year - ten. They were, however noticeably larger than last year’s fruits. This represented a 100% pollination rate as every flower formed a fruit.

The fruit had started to fall from the tree and so I assumed that the time was right for picking.


The fruits have now been set out to blet. Browsing the internet it states that the fruit should be laid out on absorbent material such as straw but this seemed over the top for just ten fruits and so I have used pieces of kitchen towel.


We now eagerly wait to see what happens!
