QUINCE

Botanical Name: Cydonia oblonga
Description

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.  The quince is valued for its high pectin content and is used frequently in jams, jellies and cosmetics. This fruit is one of the few that must be cooked as it is too tart, hard and unpalatable to eat raw.

Quince - Champion

Large, golden yellow, pear shaped fruit with a mild flavour. Excellent when preserved. The flesh becomes a beautiful dark red when cooked and the conserve, quince jelly, is one of the best. A very hardy small tree that thrives and bears well.

Quince - Chinese

Making a dense hedge if pruned, or a small shade tree with beautifully textured bark if untrained, this quince is both ornamental and practical. Unlike the ornamental quinces, this one produces a proper-sized fruit, up to 7 inches long, used for preserves, syrups and liqueurs.
