Pseudocydonia sinensis - Chinese Quince


  • A rarely offered, spreading, deciduous or semi-evergreen small tree, native to China. It has grey bark and finely-toothed, oval, dark-green leaves that have a purple hue when young during the Spring. Throughout spring, pink cup shaped flowers are in bloom and if it a hot summer are followed by ovoid fruits. The fruits can reach up to lengths of 15-25cm and as they ripen give off a sweet, intense aroma. They are hard when ripe, can be eaten fresh or can be preserved in syrups. The tree grows well in Britain against a south facing wall.
