(Cydonia oblonga) Zones 4-9 - Our Russian quince are unique for their tender and mild flavored fruit which can be eaten right from the tree. The ornamental trees display beautiful cup-shaped white flowers in late spring followed by large, waxy yellow, highly fragrant round to pear-shaped fruits in early fall. Flavor is described as lemony or pineapple. Pick in October and allow to soften. High in Vitamin C and pectin, they are used for jams, jellies, baked goods, flavoring and for canning. Small, well-behaved, disease-resistant trees grow 10 to 15 feet tall. Budded on quince rootstock.
