QUINCE, MEECH'S PROLIFIC
Cydonia oblonga Meech's Prolific

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.
