Serbian Gold Quince Trees

This is a highly ornamental and healthy self-fertile variety producing heavy crops of fragrant, apple-shaped fruits. Quinces are tip bearing fruit trees which means that it take a bit longer for them to reach full cropping. The fruit can be huge - between 0.5 and 1kg and they are incredibly fragrant. Not only do they perfume a house, on a sunny day with a gentle breeze the fragrance can fill a garden. And you can also choose other quince varieties from our range of Quinces, Figs and Medlars

About Cydonia oblonga Serbian Gold

Cydonia oblonga Serbian Gold quince trees are stunning ornamental trees. The aromatic fruits are picked earlier than most, in late September, and ripened indoors for at least a fortnight before use in the kitchen.

They are fantastic in jellies and jams, and can be made into membrillo, a quince 'cheese'. They can be added to pies and tarts and are particularly good roasted with dark meats and game.

Look at our other fruit trees or read our guide to buying the right fruit tree.

Great for your garden:

With attractive bark, beautiful large leathery foliage with good autumn colour and abundant pink blossom in spring the ornamental qualities of this quince cannot be overstated.

The fruits are a wonderful bonus and provide a rich spicy-sweet fragrance that will drift around the garden, to make the most of it plant near an entrance to the house or garden.

They look good fan trained on a south facing wall, and benefit from the warmth and shelter especially in exposed gardens. Being self-fertile they are happy on their own as specimen trees.

Cydonia oblonga Serbian Gold Trivia

Native to the Middle East and Asia the quince is known as a symbol of love, marriage and fertility. Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of love, was given this 'golden apple' by Paris, and in ancient Greece the fruit was often given as a gift at weddings.

It first appeared in England in the rather grand surroundings of the Tower of London, where Edward 1 ordered some to be planted.
