The "haw-medlar", aka ×Crataemespilus grandiflora

I don't know how I missed this when it was posted almost a year ago. It's a spontaneous hybrid between a medlar and a hawthorn.

Haw-medlar identified in Worcestershire (Joan Morgan's Fruit Forum)

So do you blet this thing?

I've actually seen "Crataegomespilus" more than "Crataemespilus". The Great Arbiter, Google, shows a few more hits for the former, but a fair amount of both.

(I'm very disappointed in the spell-checker in this Flock editor—It flags both "medlar" and "blet" as misspellings.)

Update: Nevermind...I figured it out:

×Crataemespilus = true hybrid of Crataegus and Mespilus
+Crategomespilus = graft hybrid chimera of Crataegus and Mespilus

Graft hybrids are cool.

Is the apple descended from the serviceberry via the haw and the medlar? In what country did pears originate? Many years ago, I tried a CrataeGOmespilus fruit in Mount Kisco, New York. In September it tasted like a very sour crabapple. In October it tasted like sweet red applesauce with a quince-like kick. It cleared the head like caffeine. Can you tell me what Gillenia crossed with to produce the apple-pear ancestor? Personally I think it was a haw-medlar. Do you know where I can pick up this fruit near Los Angeles?

When I saw the Crataegomespilus, the tree looked very scary. The fruit looked like a cross between a tomato and an apple. I called them dinosaur apples. I am sure Triceratops munched on these at one time. They were good, but had a wild taste that I didn't forget soon. Did you know apples are more closely related to loquats than they are to quinces? Apples, strawberries, roses, blackberries, and plums all share a common ancestor, a shrub that resembled the meadowsweet.
