Cydonia oblonga 'Rich's Dwarf'

Rich’s Dwarf quince is a dwarfing quince tree, but sports amazingly large fruit! The appearance is similar to other European quince varieties with an oblong irregular shape, but larger! The skin has a lemony scent with small hints of green apple. When eaten fresh, the flesh is firm and crisp with a unique flavor reminiscent of apples, pears and pineapple all mixed together.

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
  • Are you sending a bear route or a tree? If it’s a tree what size can I expect?

    This tree is shipped bareroot and should be 4'-5' tall tip to tip.

  • How long until the tree bears fruit? What is the average crop yield per tree?

    3-5 years from planting. As a dwarf you can expect between 100 and 120lbs per year at maturity.

  • Are quince susceptible to scab in Western Washington?

    Yes and no. Quince are susceptible to scab if left unpruned and the fruit is allowed to get shaded and the interior of the tree too full. Scab is easily prevented in quince, and most apples as well, via promoting good airflow and sunlight penetration into the crown of the tree.

  • Do deer eat quince?

    Typically they don't eat the fruit, but the leaves are edible to deer.
