This attractive tree has beautiful rounded silver leaves and pretty green-pink flowers in spring. followed by large, fragrant, pear shaped fruits that ripen to a lovely shade of yellow. The fruits can be harvested from October. Freshly picked quinces are bitter and inedible, but soften when cooked to make excellent jams and jellies, and can be added to apple pies before cooking to enhance the flavour.


Self-fertile Quince 'Vranja' is propagated onto 'Quince A' rootstock. Height and spread: 4m (13').

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

Harvest Months

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water quince trees during particularly dry periods.


Pruning quince trees begins immediately after planting. Remove the central stem to just above the highest side branch. For the following 3 years, prune only the tips of the remaining main branches by one third in winter. Aim for about six main branches which will form the frame of your tree, with fruiting sub branches growing off of them. In future years, little pruning will be required except for the removal of any dead, damaged or overcrowded branches.

Plant quince trees in reliably moist soil, neutral to acid soil in a sheltered sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.
