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.
