 Quince fruits grow on a small tree or shrub.Often
people  use  it as a ormental  plant and some time for fruit processing. It is adaptable to many climates and tolerates "wet feet" better than many other deciduous fruit trees. Quince trees bloom late  which means that they avoid spring frosts.Likeapple and pears Quinces have  same pest problems . They are self-fruitful and Used as a dwarfing rootstock for pear.
PINEAPPLE QUINCE
 
Golden yellow quince with white flesh have pineapple flavor but are  slightly tart. Used in jams, and jellies. It blooms with large, white flowers tinged pink. Cold hardy, yet low chilling requirement. Ripens in Sept./Oct. 300 hours. Self-fruitful.

Plant Care
Irrigation
 In order to get goodt crop it requires to be watered regularly during the summer months, I irrigate them 7-14 days during growing season and every 4 to 6 weeks during the winter.

Fertilizer
We have 3 to 5 inch thick layer of partially compost mulch around the tree which provide all necessary nutrient to plants.
