Cydonia oblonga - Quince Tree


  • Originating from Europe, the deciduous tree grows at an average rate and can reach up to 24ft in height.

  • The 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 tree 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.

  • It is drought tolerant as well as being hardy to temperatures down to -20c. The Cydonia oblonga is versatile in the way it can grow in full shade, semi-shade or no shade at all.
