Aromatnaya Russian Quince
For the first time in North America, gardeners can enjoy a quince that has a pineapple like flavor and is sweet enough to eat fresh. The medium size, round yellow aromatic fruit is from southern Russia. It is among the best of thousands of varieties from the Black Sea region of Russia and Turkey. It ripens in October and needs to be stored on the window until it starts to soften. It is excellent for cooking. Like other quinces, the texture uncooked is dense but it's nice when thinly sliced. The trees are much more disease resistant than other quinces.
