  8. QUINCE (FLOWERING)

    Although all quince species have flowers, gardeners often refer to this species as the "flowering quince". The fruits, (or more correctly pomes) which resemble small to medium-sized apples, soften and become less astringent after frost (when they are said to be "bletted")and are suitable for making liqueurs, as well as marmalade and preserves, as they contain more pectin than apples and cydonia quinces, and are indeed often used as a substitute for these. The fruit of flowering quinces also contains more vitamin C than lemons (up to 150 mg/100 g). Closely related to Cydonia oblonga and the Chinese quince, Pseudocydonia sinensis, they differ in having serrated leaves and attractive flowers which are borne in clusters and are usually bright orange-red, but can be white or pink, opening in late winter or early spring. ...
