The quince tree is in the same family as apple and pear. The large yellow aromatic flesh is a favorite for making jellies and jams. The tree grows 5 to 8 m tall (16-26 feet) high and 4 to 6 m (13-19 feet) wide. The tree is self-fertile, however, its yield can benefit from cross-pollination. The tree is adapted to a wide range of orchard type soils and is best suited to zones 6-8 climates where apples and tender fruit are common. It is a long lived tree, but it is occasionally susceptible to fire blight, a bacterial disease, so as soon as the flagging branches are seen in early summer, they should be removed and burned or removed from the area to prevent further damage to the tree.

Sorry, no quince trees to the USA or BC due to government restrictions.
