The best thing about this old tree is the colour of the autumn foliage. I get a lovely russett orange from the leaves at a time when there is still plenty of light in the garden.The fruit is an interesting shape that few people recognise as something edible. And unless you cook with it you need to let it ripen off the tree for a month before you can tackle it. Used like apple butter when 'fresh', it is ok, but it is much better as a quince substitute to make a jelly or paste. Dont bother trying to bottle it.
