Cydonia oblonga 'Aromatnaya'

North American gardeners can now enjoy a quince with a pineapple-like flavor that is sweet enough to eat fresh. The medium size “aromatic” fruit is among the best of thousands of varieties from the Black Sea region of Russia and Turkey. The disease resistant tree produces round, yellow fruit, which ripens in October and needs to be stored on the window until it starts to soften. Like other quinces, the uncooked texture is dense, but it’s nice when thinly sliced and it is excellent for cooking.

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.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Can you get quince trees in standard or semi dwarf?

    This rootstock is considered semi dwarf. There are not a significant number of different quince rootstocks available for grafting.

  • Each of your quince varieties all show a height of 4 to 5 feet in the header , but show a grow height of 11 feet in the lower part of the description. Which is correct?

    Our quince are 4'-5' tall when shipped and grow to a mature height of 11'-15' at maturity.

  • How old, big of a tree will I get & how long before it produces fruit?

    Roughly 3 years old and 4'-5' tall. It will produce early, but should be thinned heavily to prevent the roots from exhausting themselves making too much fruit.

We ordered two quince and when they arrived they were unpackaged and kept moist. They were planted within three days and watered regularly. The buds never swelled or produced leaves. We recently took them out as they appeared dead

This is the second quince I ordered from RTN. The first was a Turkish one and leafed out within 2 weeks of planting. The Russian one is, so far, quiet but I have great hopes for it. It arrived nicely snuggled and completely intact. TY RTN.

Spectacular spectacular!

At first I was just happy to find one of these trees in stock so I ordered it in January. The tree arrived in late March and it was still dormant. I was very impressed by how large it was and how extensive it root system was. I put it in a large landscaping pot immediately, because its permanent home isn't ready yet. About a week of mild temperatures and partial sun woke it from its slumber and it's getting ready to start leafing out. I'm thrilled with this purchase and so happy I found this nursery.
