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 fresh, 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. Very susceptible to fire blight in much of the U.S.
All our dormant trees (except Pecan trees) and berries come with a limited replacement guarantee.
Your order will ship out of our warehouse as soon as we receive your trees. (Dec-Jan). We cannot hold bare root items in CA, as they will begin to bud or flower. Once they break dormancy, they can no longer be shipped. We do not have the refrigerator capacity to hold all orders, which is why all trees will ship out as soon as we receive them. If you won’t be ready to plant when the trees arrive, watch our "Heeling in Bare Root Trees" video and learn how to keep your trees healthy until you are ready to plant.
