Cydonia oblonga 'Orange'
Enjoy large, round fruit with bright yellow skin, orange-tinted tender and flavorful flesh that turns red when it's cooked. 'Orange' is an old-time fruiting quince tree variety that features some of the largest and most fragrant quince you can find.
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. Considered low chill; requires 300 hours between 32F-45F to reliably bloom and set fruit.
