Quince is a favourite food around the world and is generally related to the apple and pear, so why isn't it more popular in the UK?

Quince comes an ornamental bush or a tree and they are perfectly suited to the UK climate as they can tolerate poorer soils and grow in both light and shade, they do like full sun for the fruit to ripen to their deep yellow colour, but they do have a long growing season which sees them harvested in late autumn to early winter when the last of the traditional fruits have disappeared.

Quince need a little care as the seeds are poisonous and once we understand this we can look at how they are grown, traditionally they can be grown from seed if you cut a ripe quince open and scoop out the seeds and place them in a sealable plastic bag with some moist sand and put them in the fridge for 4 months or so, then plant them out in the spring. Quince traditionally grow as bushes and all that is required to get the full size fruit is to turn them into a tree by snipping off any stems or side shoots and leave only one stem to grow upwards and continiually prune it until you have a trunk and let it go wild at that stage. After that there is little work such as pruning to do.

Quince trees can be turned into more bushes by planting the cuttings you get from the prunings and pruning the resulting bushes into even more trees, you can train them into espaliers by training them up wires along a wall or frame and they still give excellent results with high yields of fruit which is generally cooked.
