Cydonia oblonga 'Smyrna'

This reliably productive, self-fertile tree was brought from Turkey over a century ago. Its large, yellow, pear-shaped fruit is great for cooking, with a delicious mild flavor that is favored for desserts, preserves and jellies.

At the turn of the 20th century almost every rural family had a fruiting quince tree they relied on for medicine, pectin, and fragrant, long-lasting fruits. The varieties we offer have delightful pineapple-like flavors. They are prized for cooking, jelly making, and adding to apple cider. Quince trees are self fertile and showy, with big white blossoms in late spring and unusual, fuzzy yellow fruits in fall.
