The new hybrid, Marron, Medlar tree is highly productive and produces large fruit with a powerfully flavorful pulp of a custard consistency and hints of spiced applesauce. The softening stage of the medlar fruit is very similar to Japanese persimmons that are astringent and also some pear cultivars. Medlar jelly is revered as the ultimate breakfast jelly spread with its unique fragrance and flavor. Throughout the ages the medlar fruit has been exhibited in sculpture, as art objects and in hunting scenes, both in embroidery materials and an canvas by the famous artist of the impressionist period, Renoir. The Greek civilization embraced the cultivation of the winter ripening fruit, the medlar, and later the Romans spread the trees to be planted throughout the Roman empire.
