Bare Root Quince

The quince is a beautiful flowering tree with pale pink blossoms. The dark green leaves turn yellow in the fall. After the leaves have dropped, the gnarled, twisted branches remain as an attractive winter accent.

The trees need minimal pruning – enough to promote a desired form. Quince trees are susceptible to the bacterial disease fire blight so we recommend using low amounts of nitrogen fertilizer since lots of lush new growth will promote this disease.

The fruit is rather tart and very fragrant. It contains a high pectin content which makes it especially useful for jams and jellies. Quince is very compatible with apples. Adding quince to apple sauce will give it some extra zip!
