Cydonia oblonga 'Claribel'

An open-pollinated seed from the Russian quince cultivar 'Maslenka Rannaya' was received by the USDA Germplasm Repository from the Vavilov Research Institute in Volgograd, Russia in 1990. This seedling clone named 'Claribel' has stood out as superior, with larger fruit, greater production, unusually good resistance to fungal diseases, and resistance to cracking following autumn rains.

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.

Ask a Question
  • What is the best time of year to plant this tree? And how many years before it bears fruit?

    Springtime and usually within 2-3 years. Beware early bearing, the tree can exhaust itself and die from making too many fruits too early.

Both trees are dead.

I ordered Claribel Quince and Aromatnaya Russian Quince. Aromatnaya doesn't even look like a tree. It's a stick! Not a single branch. Both were planted 5/21/23. Today is 6/6/23 and trees look dead. The bark is getting more withered every day. This is obviously a sign of death.
Please let me know how this could be resolved.
Thank you,
