Cydonia oblonga, commonly known as the quince, is a small deciduous tree that typically reaches heights of 5 to 8 meters (16 to 26 feet) tall. Its overall appearance resembles that of a pear tree, with a gnarled trunk and spreading branches. The leaves are oval-shaped, glossy green, and have a slightly fuzzy texture on the underside.

In spring, the quince tree produces beautiful pink or white blossoms with five petals, similar in appearance to apple or pear blossoms. These fragrant flowers attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

The fruit of Cydonia oblonga, also called quince, is distinctive and easily recognizable. It is typically large, yellow-green to golden-yellow when ripe, and has a lumpy, irregular shape resembling a pear or apple. The fruit's skin is tough and fuzzy when mature, and its flesh is firm, dry, and highly aromatic. Quinces are known for their tartness and astringency when raw, but they become sweet and flavorful when cooked.

Growing Instructions

The seeds have a period of dormancy. They can be planted outdoors in the fall or winter for spring germination or they can be cold stratified to simulate winter conditions and to break their dormancy at any time of the year.

  1. Place the seeds in a plastic bag and seal it. Store the bag in a refrigerator for 4-6 weeks.
  2. The seeds like moist, well-drained soil. Fill a pot with a mixture of half potting soil and half sand or vermiculite.
  3. Sow the seeds on the soil and cover them with a thin layer of soil.
  4. Water the container.
  5. Put the pot in a warm, sunny area.
  6. Water the pot regularly so that the soil is moist but not wet.
