Every autumn the local community donate their medlar fruit which is then turned into delicious batches of Aromatic Medlar Jelly. For every jar sold, we are putting 25p towards buying bee-friendly medlar trees, and another 25p towards the Save The Bee campaign run by The British Beekeepers Association. Not only will you be getting a delectable jelly but you’ll also be helping our great British bee!
“The Tracklements Save a Bee, Plant a Tree project is a great way to help the conservation of bees. A brilliant scheme to be involved in; donate your medlars or purchase a jar to help.”
Adam Henson, Cotsworld Farm Park
The unusual looking medlar fruit makes delicious jelly which is both fruity and sweet – the perfect accompaniment for roast meats, ham and pork pies or for your table at Christmas lunch.

If you have any medlars you won’t be using, give yourself a buzzy boost and give British bees a helping hand in the process. Please drop them off in our shop (they’re best after the first frost!) at Tracklements, Whitewalls, Easton Grey, SN16 0RD (01666 827044, open 9am-5pm Monday-Friday) up until November 29th, and you can choose your favourite planet-friendly Tracklement as a token of our gratitude!
