Cydonia oblonga. An old tree that was already here when we moved in. Bears ample fruits that are very large and can be 0.5kg each. Easy to peel with a potato peeler. Gets a nice red colour when baked and has great flavour. The tree is easy to care for ...

Quince. I had a very old Quince tree in NSW, and cooked the fruit like my pears with blueberries and a little honey to sweeten, so no cane sugar. Very delicious. Lovely served with plain Greek yoghurt. Enjoy

I use to love eating these as a kid. My mum would slice them into pieces and stew them in water with a small amount of sugar, just like stewed apples. The pieces would turn almost orange-red when cooking and smell delicious. Serve with custard. Yum!

Very large yellow fruit.

Lazy-day recipe: I grate the quince, add lemon juice as it oxidises really quickly. I have sugar/water syrup always made up (for cocktails, etc)Cook on low 20mins in small amount of syrup, stir occasionally. Serve with custard or icecream.

Quinces can be cooked to perfection in a slow cooker. Peel, cut into eighths. Cover with a light sugar syrup and leave on low overnight. In the morning the house is filled with a wonderful scent and the fruit segments are ruby red.

Quince - Smyrna

Smyrna is a good variety but not the only one. NSW DPI is a good place to start. Fullers and Van Deman are great tasting so are the old colonial ones. Avoid some of the pumped up Americans such as Missouri Mammoth. There are new Asian varieties on the way

My first quince suffered from unknown leaf disease fungi's. (high rainfall and humidity). Replanting where drying air can circulate did the trick.

Quinces are really just giant rose hips. Feed heavily with rose food when actively growing. Add potassium for extra flowers. Pulp can be cooked with sugar to make a fabulous black paste or with less sugar and cinnamon as a dessert fruit.

Quince - Smyrna

I have a friend who grew up near Mudgee, in an old hut, during the depression, with Dad away on the road a lot of the time. Food was what you could find [thank God for rabbits] and she found that quinces were delicious raw if you were really hungry.
