Originating from Europe, Cydonia oblonga a deciduous tree grows at an average rate and can reach up to 24ft in height. Cydonia oblonga blooms during mid-late Spring, the soft pink and white flowers can grow to 4-cm and are known to have a sweet fragrance. During Autumn, the Common Quince produces ornamental fruit (roughly 10cm by 9cm) which look very similar to yellow pears. The fruit is strongly aromatic and has a firm but slightly gritty flesh. It is edible and mainly used in jams and jellies. The tree during this season becomes a beautiful addition to the garden with the orange, red and yellow foliage contrasting against the golden-yellow fruits.
The intended main use of this plant is to grow food for human consumption. We always recommend further research to learn the different ways in which the food source can be prepared and consumed.
