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.
