Quince has a culture similar to apples and pears, and may be grown successfully in both cooler tropical locations and colder temperate regions. The fruit is used stewed, preserved or made into jams and jellies. Not fussy about soils except light, shallow soils likely to dry out; heavy, moist soils are particularly good and established trees can withstand periods of very wet conditions, but this does not mean that quinces like poorly drained situations. Susceptible to iron deficiency under alkaline conditions; hence they prefer slightly acid soils. Flowers late, but may still be damaged by late frost.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Pecan, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
