"My Belle de Boskoop apple tree arrived safe and well and I am delighted with it. It was very well protected for its journey and is now planted in the ground."
- Liz Heydon
Quince Trees make a highly ornamental small tree worthy of a place in any garden with superb display of large soft pink flowers in spring. In autumn a winning combination of very large glowing golden yellow pear shaped fruits set amongst seasonal mellow brown and amber foliage
Bring the Quince fruits into the kitchen and sit in a warm place to fill the room with a delicious scented aroma
Use the Quince fruits to add a unique flavour to apple pies and puddings
Especially good if slow cooked whole in the oven and then served with fresh vanilla ice cream
Fruits bright golden-yellow, pear shaped, of excellent flavour, less downy than most, early ripening - a week before Vrajna; fruit borne at an early age (3 years). Good heavy cropper. The fruits keep well.
A good hardy disease resistant variety suitable for most parts of the UK and like most quinces a stunning sight when the tree is covered in soft rose pink flowers. These are followed in autumn by large apple shaped golden fruits which after storing for a month or so at room temperature make very tasty quince style treats including Quince liqueur and Quince cheese.
Fruits very large, pear-shaped, very fragrant, a clear shiny gold, with a softer flesh than many, excellent flavour. Fruits borne at an early age (4-6 years). Vranja is a good cropper. Suited to fan training; very vigorous, erect growth.
