At Eastgate in rural North Norfolk, Jane Steward is reviving the medlar, an old English fruit which was once Britain's sweet treat. Her trees are alive with colour for much of the year: white and yellow flowers in the summer, green leaves that turn to gold and russet. Grafted onto quince A rootstock, and helped by local honey bees, these are trees with prolific fruit.

Alongside the Nottingham variety of medlars, Jane has established a national culinary collection on her six-acre smallholding. Varieties include Breda, Dutch, Westerveld, Macrocarpa, Royal, Bredase Reus, Flanders Giant, Iranian medlars. Her book on medlars will have over 30 recipes alongside a myriad of information on this forgotten fruit.

Born and bred in Paddington, Jane and her young family moved to the East End in the mid-1980s, and she had two very distinct careers before Eastgate Larder was born. Using her linguistic background - she is fluent in French and German - Jane worked as an equities broker in the City for almost 17 years. Slowly, Jane began to plot her way out of City life.By then, Jane had met David, a Suffolk boy from a farming background, and they discussed where they wanted to live. They chose Eastgate, a tiny hamlet near Cawston in Norfolk. There they began the next chapter of their lives, and planted a medlar orchardhttps: //
