Medlars

Medlars are a relative of the rose hip. This small brown fruit can only be eaten when it has started to decay and rot. Before this they are way too hard - afterwards they have a very sweet flavour. You can see the resemblance to a rose hip. The French call the medlar "un bout de chien" - literally translated - "dog's bottom"..... just take a look! Posted by Picasa
