Family Rosaceae
Originating from S.W. Asia

Large deciduous shrub or small tree with pink-tinged flowers followed by large, fragrant, shining gold edible pear-shaped fruits that fill the air with a lemony perfume. 'Vranja' is said to be softer than other varieties. The fruit of quince is harsh and astringent when raw and - barely edible, but is superb when cooked as a jam or jelly, and can impart a flavour like no other to an apple pie. Not for nothing is quince referred to as the truffle of the orchard.
Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun.
