Chaenomeles Speciosa

Chaenomeles Speciosa or Japanese Quince, I think it is an interesting fruit as the tree is very small. I read that the yields are very variable from seed, and that there is a cultivar named 'rasa', is this cultivar or another good cultivar available somewhere?

Well worth growing for the flowers in Katoomba but I don't think there is a very productive cultivar. It is an intermittent producer of fruit at best, but one of the best flowering shrubs because it flowers in mid -late winter.

Keep it in check or it will take over the whole garden, and pick a few stems in bud long before they open. The earlier you pick them the paler the flower will be when they open, ranging from near-white to deep red for the ones left to flower on the bush.

When older people refer to "e;japonica"e; this is the plant they usually mean.

Thanks! Probably the fruit producing variety rasa is not available in Australia.
My thought was that this would be a great tree since it is so small!
