This tree is endangered in the wild. It is native to the woods of England. I grew mine from seeds obtained from a tree in Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle.

The brown speckled fruit has been used to make a cider in England. The fruit is usually bletted if it is going to be eaten raw. This involves storing the fruit in a cool dry place until it is almost but not quite going rotten. At this stage the fruit has a delicious taste, somewhat like a luscious tropical fruit[1].
