Deciduous fruit tree of the Rosaceae family. A fruit tree, under ideal (frost-free) conditions, the plant grows up to 8 m, but more often it is much lower.
The leaves of the tree are dark green elliptical, 8-15 cm long and 3-4 cm wide, but in autumn, before falling, they change color to red. Five-petalled white flowers appear in late spring.
The fruit is reddish-brown in color, 2-3 cm in diameter, with unfolded permanent sepals, giving it a hollow appearance. The fruits of the German medlar are hard and sour. They are suitable for eating only after a rise in price or long-term storage (in the event that the fruits are removed from the tree before the onset of frost). At the same time, they become sweet and soft, but acquire a wrinkled structure and decrease in volume.
