A tale of many medlars. Each year for decades now, our friend Kaye gives us her tree’s entire crop of fruit.
Sometimes the yield is small due to inclement weather or the ravages of possums.
Not so this year! Friends Lizzie and Nina can be seen here gathering this season’s bounty a couple of days ago.
The medlars are now home with us, all 10 boxes of them, quietly bletting on straw in the shed.
In a few weeks’ time they will be at the perfect stage to make specialty of our house – medlar liqueur!
