Looking to grow some Medlar fruit trees wondering if anyone has a sight that sells these in the Midwest area. I live in zone 5b north west Indiana. Thanks.

If it is a locally adapted seedling then yes try your very very best to get it from a local vendor. If it is from your local home depo or even a local nursery that sells the same big Breda cultivar that they sell in the deserts of Arizona it really doesn't make a difference.

All that said fedco in Maine nearby me sells some hardy zone3 stuff. http://www.fedcoseeds.com/trees/?item=524

I got mines from https://onegreenworld.com/shop/fruiting-trees-shrubs/breda-giant-2/

I got mine from Raintree Nursery a year ago. They were very healthy. good sized trees. They bloomed that spring but didn't set any fruit. I was impressed that they even bloomed.
