    I went to a scion show two weeks ago, and I asked/reminded two people happily scavenging the jar filled with medlar cuttings, "You know you have to blett medlars before you eat them, right?"  Whereupon they say, "No, we didn't know that" as they whipped out their smartphone to confirm what I just told them.

    Titli Titli…… I read this on Nick Slaters website thought you and your subscribers might appreciate this: In Medieval times, medlar was known as the ‘dog’s bottom’ tree, a name that appears rude until you inspect the fruit and realise how accurate the description was. ‘Medlar’ is a later name derived from the French language.
    ha ha …..

    So it looks awful, tastes blah and needs a lot of work to be used?  No thanks, but your video was interesting.

    Reminded me of "Tales from the Green Valley", they collected Medlar fruit in episode 3. Worth a look if you get chance (I believe you might find it here on youtube)

    Thanks for the information, Titli.  I doubt I will ever plant a medlar tree. Doesn't sound at all delicious.

    What a wonderful surprise, Titli! So if you're not making jam with it, what are you hoping to make with it? The cookies you mentioned in yesterday's video? Hmmm….

    we call it nèfle here in France, I discovered this product last autum when a neighbour told me there was a public park with this tree, people who know about it collect the fruits, its like a secret thing ^^ one fruit that Ive recently discovered is anone, but its exotic but so tasty, sweet, like strawberry and banana at the same time, so good! we call it anone in Frnce, you should have a try if you can find it in the uk!

    so basically, your advice is "don't plant any medlear fruit in your garden" XD

    Thank you Titli, I've been wondering what it was (sometimes Google just isn't enough). Couldn't you bake it up in a cake like applesauce with some cinnamon, nutmeg & cloves?  Just wondering.
