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.

Ask a Question
  • 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.
