Medlar

Here you can see a medlar tree, a tree that have been cultivated since the Roman period. The fruit of this tree is eaten raw, sometimes with cream and sugar. It is also cooked in some dishes. However, this fruit cannot be consumed without following a process of softening called bletting making it less acidic. (text and photo by Antonin)

A Willow

The garden is full of surprising plants like… a willow! I was more expecting an apple tree than a willow in a garden. But the branches of this kind of willow are like wicker : they can be twisted as we want and we can use them directly in the garden, so I found it pretty smart. (text and photo by Enora)
