Royal Medlar (Mespilius germanica) Pretty ornamental shrub or small tree with a dense spreading head of branches and edible fruits. Related to the hawthorn, the leaves are similar, but larger. Produces solitary white blooms tinged with a pink flush. The fruits have a distinctive flavor and, like quince, the fruit should be allowed to ripen fully on the tree before picking. Interesting and very good. Hardy to -20F (-28.8C); height: 10ft.
