Chaenomeles speciosa 'Toyo Nishiki'

This showy variety can offer white, pink and even magenta flowers on the same branch! Japanese flowering quinces are a group of very winter hardy, deciduous shrubs covered with an abundance of beautiful flowers early each spring.  Branches are wonderful to bring inside and force for late winter blooms. The varieties we offer each follow up with a small crop of nutritious fruit with a pineapple/citrus flavor that can be used to make jellies or syrups. This is a great edible ornamental!

Flower buds develop on year-old and older wood. They make effective, thorny hedge plants, as well as early-flowering food for pollinizing insects. For heavier yields, plant more than one variety.

USDA Zone: 5

Mature Size: 8'-10' x 8'-10'

Sun: Full Sun to Part Shade

Ripening Time: October/November

Pollination: Partially Self Fruitful

Size: 1 Gallon Pot


Ask a Question
  • Any puctures of actual Toyo Quince that I would get if purchased?

    Toyo Nishiki is not grown for the fruit, but rather the flowers. The fruits are small, dingy yellow to brown, and are only used to make Ume Japanese wines.

  • When you say "plant more than one variety, for heavier yields..." do you mean different varieties of quince or is it sufficient to plant several different bushes of the Toyo Nishiki? I currently have many of this one variety, do they need other types to produce fruit?

    Different variaties. Cross pollination always promotes better fruiting in even "self fertile" plants.

  • Can you eat quince as a fruit?

    You can, yes, and it's sometimes used to make Ume wine. It is not choice however.

  • What's the spread of the Toyo Nishiki Flowering Quince? Thanks!

    Roughly as wide as tall so 10 feet by 10 feet.

  • I live in zone 4 due to 3-5 feet of snow in the winter. Will the quince survive? Last winter we got a -20F. Idaho ag says we are zone 4, others say we are in zone 5 or 6. I live in the Cabinet area in the northern Idaho panhandle.

    All we can say is the plant is rated for a zone 5 climate. If you believe your climate is actually closer to zone 4 it would be your experiment to run.

Toyo Nishiki has the wrong color

I got one from you a couple years ago and it has peachy orange flowers, not white, pink and magenta. I just realized today it is the wrong color as I read an article about Quince shrubs. When it first flowered I thought I would get different colors but since the label said Toyo Nishiki, I thought I must have been wrong. It's pretty but now I know it is not what I thought I bought. Do you know what variety I got?
