Medlars: The Miracle Fruit for Skin, Sight and Heart – Gordon Ramsay’s version

Medlars: The Miracle Fruit for Skin, Sight and Heart


Medlars, sweet and juicy fruits originating from south-east China, are now appreciated throughout the world not only for their flavor but also for the numerous benefits they bring to health. Also known and used in traditional Chinese medicine, medlars boast properties that make them a precious food for daily well-being.

A Treasure of Vitamins and Minerals

Medlars grow on trees with large, shiny leaves, with the scientific name of Eriobotrya japonica, different from Mespilus germanica, the European medlar. Rich in water (87%) and with just 47 calories per 100 grams, medlars are an excellent source of vitamins, mineral salts and fibre. Their main nutrients include potassium, vitamins A and B, iron, manganese and copper.

Health Benefits

  1. Cardiovascular protection: The potassium content of medlars helps maintain electrolyte balance and regulate blood pressure, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  2. Cholesterol reduction: The fibers present in medlars bind excess fats in the intestine, helping to reduce cholesterol levels in the blood.
  3. Improved Vision: Rich in vitamin A, medlars protect the retina and fight free radicals.
  4. Intestinal regularity: Pectin, a soluble fiber, helps eliminate toxins and promotes intestinal regularity.
  5. Care of the skin and mucous membranes: Vitamin A has an antioxidant action that protects the skin and mucous membranes from aging.
  6. Renewal of Blood Cells: Minerals such as magnesium, manganese, copper and iron are essential for the formation of new red blood cells.
  7. Alleviation of Kidney Problems: Medlars act as diuretics, helping to eliminate uric acids, useful in cases of hyperuricemia, gout and kidney stones.

Phytotherapeutic Properties of the Leaves

The leaves of the medlar also have notable beneficial properties. In phytotherapy, they are used as expectorants and mucolytics to treat coughs. In traditional Chinese medicine, they are used against headaches, back pain and vomiting, thanks to their antiviral and anti-inflammatory compounds.

Consumption and Conservation

A portion of medlars is equivalent to 2-3 medium fruits. They are in season between May and June and must be consumed fresh, after having peeled and washed them carefully. They can be enjoyed as a snack or dessert, as well as made into sauces and jams.

Watch out for the hazelnuts

Despite the benefits of medlars, it is important to avoid stones that contain amygdalin, a substance that releases toxic hydrogen cyanide in large quantities.

Summer and Winter Medlars: Differences

In addition to summer medlars, there are winter medlars (Mespilus germanica), harvested in November. These have a different appearance and must ripen before being consumed. Although more caloric, they are equally rich in minerals and vitamins, with diuretic, hypotensive, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

In conclusion, medlars are a precious fruit for health, also suitable for those following a slimming diet, thanks to their low calorie content and richness in essential nutrients.
