Yes, I am in `Hotlanta' (now, not so hot).
I may I will try some other medlars. The flavor of
mine in not bad,
but I hoped it would be better. I bought it a while
thinking that it would be good low-care fruit to try,
and if I didnt like it,
I would graft somthing else on it.
Mayhaw might be good to try, but many of the Crataegus
I have seen seems to suffer from
a kind of rust....plus I am not big jelly/jam person.
I would be willing to try a pie though. :)
