A Bit about Quince
Quince is kind of an odd fruit. Some consider it a delicacy, whereas others may not have ever seen or even heard of it. When we moved to Templeton, there was a quince tree in our orchard. I was one who was not very familiar with the fruit and I had never tasted it. My mother-in-law was one who had used it to make jelly. I did learn that you don't eat it raw. It must be cooked. Once cooked it is similar to an apple in texture, but it does need something to sweeten it.
The first photo shows you the tree in bloom in March. This next photo show some baby quince a couple of months later.
In this last photo you can see the tree loaded with fruit in November. It is green and fuzzy. It becomes more yellow as it ripens, but sometimes it has to finish ripening off the tree, inside on a window sill.
As you see in the photo above, this poor quince tree has almost fallen to the ground and the trunk is in terrible shape. Still, though, with almost no care, this tree continues to produce fruit every year. It seems to have a strong desire to survive. FOPP fruit trees
