Seker Gevrek Quince
Cydonia ablonga 'Seker Gevrek'
Originally from Turkey, this variety will withstand heavy summer heat, and may even sweeten in long summer regions. Rich, intense flavor and a heady aroma makes these heritage fruits a must for any serious foodie homesteader. Old-timers know about the medicinal uses for each part of the fruit, and look to Seker Gevrek as an unusually durable variety highly prized in its Middle East homeland.
At the turn of the 20th century almost every rural family had a fruiting quince tree. The varieties we offer have delightful pineapple-like flavors. They are prized for cooking, jelly making, and adding to apple ciders. Quince trees are self fertile, have big white blossoms
in late spring and very large bright yellow fruit.
