Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

A productive and hardy quince with a neat dwarf habit that makes it perfect for small gardens and patio containers. Like its larger cousins, Quince 'Leskovac' is clothed in beautiful rounded silver leaves and pretty green-pink flowers in spring. The fragrant, pear shaped fruits that follow ripen to a lovely shade of yellow, and can be harvested from October. Freshly picked quinces are bitter and inedible, but once cooked they soften to make excellent jams and jellies, and enhance the flavour of apple pies when a few slices are added before cooking.

  • Pear and Quince rootstocks:
  • Quince C/ Quince Eline/ Quince Adams - Dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 2.5-3m (8-10')
  • Quince A - Semi vigorous reaching a mature height of up to 3m (10') to 4m (13')

This variety is self-fertile and does not require a pollination partner.

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.


Please note: Patio trees are derived from clonal selections for dwarfism which ensures a particularly compact growth habit of around 1m (39") in height.

Plant patio fruit trees in containers holding at least 30 litres of good quality compost such as John Innes No.3. Alternatively reliably moist soil, neutral to acid soil in a sheltered, sunny position. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level, firm them into the ground and water well.

Feed and water containerised plants regularly. Patio quince trees will require little pruning. Prune only the tips of the main branches by one third in winter. Some sub branches can be pruned out when necessary at the union where they join the main branch, to allow new sub branches to take their place.
