Quinces are small trees originally from Georgia and Azerbaijan. They are aromatic fruits similar to pears, full of vitamin C and pectin. When cooked can be used in savoury and sweet dishes, made into jellies and preserves. They can be used as specimen trees in small gardens. Require a warm, sunny, sheltered spot to protect from frost and aid fruit development.
