Cydonia oblonga 'Portugal'

Portugal is a large, pear shaped, old European variety that is larger in the middle and tapers at both ends. Portugal quince stews well and becomes a deep crimson when cooked. Mixing one Portugal with a dozen apples will make a uniquely pink sauce with a delicious pineapple like quince flavor.

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.
