Cydonia oblonga Vranja

QUINCE, VRANJA (Cydonia oblonga Vranja)
 

Quinces are very attractive so are grown as ornamental specimens as well as for their early produced fruit. They produce many large, solitary, blush-pink flowers in spring followed by pear-shaped, excellent flavoured, very aromatic fruits in autumn, which store well. These are good for jam, jelly, wine or added to apple dishes where they add a wonderful extra flavour. Self-fertile but produces even better crops if two different varieties are planted. Quinces need a warm position and a moist soil and flourish as waterside specimens.
