Quince is an old-fashioned fruit species that is re-gaining well-deserved attention again. There are new varieties which are very tasty as well as good looking. Vranja bears large fruit that is typically pear-shaped, rich yellow when ripe and highly aromatic. Flowers are also large, pinkish white.

All quince varieties are cultivated for the strongly aromatic fruit which is picked in late autumn, usually in October in temperate regions of Europe. In countries with hot and long summers it is left on the tree until it turns soft which is a sign of maturity, and then it is very aromatic and sweet. Here the fruit is commonly processed as it is used to enhance aroma of desserts, preserves and other meals with different types of scent-lacking fruit. It has high content of potassium and vitamin C, sugars are on the same level as in apples, for instance.

Quince is soil adaptable, however, if you are looking for heavy crop of quality fruit make sure the soil is well-drained, medium moist, and rich in organic matter. Grow it as a compact shrub or small tree in full sun or some shade, it will not tolerate deep shade. Pruning time and style are identical to what you do with apples – cut off too long branches in late winter. Hardy to about -30°C.
