Growing Information

Zone Compatibility: The Breda Giant Medlar tree is a hardy and resilient species suitable for USDA hardiness zones 4-9.

Size: It can thrive in various soil types, including loamy, sandy, or clayey soils, making it adaptable to different environments. This deciduous tree typically reaches a mature height of 12-15 feet, making it a perfect choice for smaller gardens or as a striking focal point.

Chill Hours: To ensure proper fruit production, Breda Giant Medlar trees require approximately 400-500 chill hours, which means they need exposure to cold temperatures (between 32°F and 45°F) during their winter dormancy period.

Planting: Plant your Breda Giant Medlar tree in a well-drained location with plenty of sunlight. Proper spacing is essential to allow for adequate air circulation and growth. Planting in early spring is recommended for optimal root establishment.

Pruning: Pruning should be done in late winter to early spring when the tree is dormant. Regular pruning helps maintain the tree's shape, improve air circulation, and remove dead or damaged branches.

Watering: While Breda Giant Medlar trees are relatively drought-tolerant once established, consistent watering during the growing season is crucial, especially during dry spells.

Fruit Description:
The Breda Giant Medlar produces large, round, and russet-colored fruits that resemble tiny pumpkins.

Flavor: They are known for their unique and complex flavor, often described as a delightful blend of apple, pear, and date.

Texture: When fully ripe, the fruit's texture is soft and creamy, much like a custard, making it a delightful treat to enjoy fresh or in various culinary creations.

Color: The fruit starts green and gradually turns to a rich, russet-brown color as it matures.

Harvest Time: Harvesting typically occurs in late fall, once the fruit has softened and developed its sweet, rich flavor.

Pollination: Breda Giant Medlar trees are partially self-fertile, but to ensure a bountiful harvest, it's advisable to have more than one tree or to plant it near other compatible fruit trees to encourage cross-pollination.

Incorporate the regal Breda Giant Medlar tree into your garden or orchard, and enjoy the distinctive beauty and extraordinary flavor it brings. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or a newcomer to fruit trees, this unique specimen is sure to be a conversation starter and a cherished addition to your landscape.
