Large, colourful, and aromatic, the characterful, dusky pink blooms are a sight to behold in every garden and appear not long before the fruits start to produce

Quince Tree FAQs

  • How long does it take for a quince tree to bear fruit?

    Once the ornamental tree has grown and matured, quince trees can start bearing fruit after around 5-6 years. Fruit from the quince tree can be harvested in October or November – keep an eye out when they turn into a golden colour and are giving off an aromatic scent.

    The secret to a tasty quince is by leaving them as long as possible on the tree, however, make sure you remove them before there is a risk of frost.

    If you picked it too early and it needs more time to ripen, you should store them for six months before use to allow the flavour and colour to develop. Quince fruit will keep for two or three months.

  • How big do quince trees grow?

    The height that quince trees grow can range from 3-6 metres tall and can live for around 25 years. They aren’t a big tree so will be a great option for small to mid-sized gardens or areas with limited space.

  • How do you take care of a quince tree?

    Quince trees need a sunny location with rich, fertile soil with good drainage. These trees can adapt well to wet or dry soil so are relatively low maintenance. It is hard to overwater a quince tree. They can last a significant amount of time without water, so water them when you think it is necessary. 

  • Can you eat quince raw?

    Quince is unique to other fruits and is rarely eaten raw. Raw quince is particularly sour with tough and grainy flesh. However, when they are cooked they develop into an aromatic fruit and become soft and sweet with a sharp flavour.

    Fruit trees are an excellent way to attract wildlife to your garden.
