Medlar 'Westerveldt' (patio)

Mespilus germanica, Dutch Medlar, Minshull Crab

You can now grow this unusual fruit on your patio! Medlar 'Westerveldt' is a compact clone which has been grafted high up on to 'Quince C' rootstock to encourage an even more compact habit. Ideal for growing in large containers, this small tree produces large white flowers in spring followed by full-sized medlar fruits in the autumn. The attractive leathery leaves turn to shades of golden orange in autumn making this a worthwhile specimen plant for the patio. The russet coloured, apple shaped fruits are excellent eaten with wine, port and cheese, although are more commonly used to make medlar jelly or the Victorian delicacy Medlar cheese.

Grafted onto a 'Quince C' rootstock, to produce a compact tree with moderate vigour. This Medlar is well suited to growing in small spaces and 60cm (24") diameter containers. 'Westerveldt' is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Medlars will begin to fruit 2 or 3 years after planting. Height and spread: 1m (3') (if containerised). Rootstock: 'Quince C'.
