The quince tree has been cultivated by people for thousands of years. Originating from Turkey and Iran this is a fruit with a fascinating history, it features strongly in the history and mythology of both Greece and Rome. Trees are very long lived and have a beautiful, gnarly twisted appearance, they are exceptionally hardy and can withstand both periods of dry and severe cold.
