Vranja Quince

Vranja - Quince trees (which are now know as Cydonia oblonga rather than Pyrus cydonia) produce wonderfully scented fruit which when ripe are almost gold in colour. The quince is a native of Iranian mountainsides and as such is extremely hardy but Vranja quince trees, like all quinces need some sun to fruit well. As it is planted further north, Vranja needs an increasingly warm spot, and by the time it gets to Yorkshire, a sunny wall or corner is necessary for reliable crops.

As well as being edible, quince trees are ornamental and look as good as the centre piece of a lawn as your average garden tree. Vranja - like Meeches Prolific and Serbian Gold the other quinces that do well in the UK is self-fertile (you can find the other varieties in our range of Quince trees, figs and medlars). It flowers in May and carries heavy crops of very fragrant fruit - quinces were once used as room fresheners - which can be picked in September and October. Vranja probably carries larger numbers of fruit than Meeches or Serbian Gold although its fruit size may be a bit smaller. 

If you want to buy quince trees and have never grown them before, this is probably the we would recommend to a beginner.

Quinces like good soil with plenty of well rotted organic matter added to it. The fruit can be huge and so need plenty of moisture in the ground. At the same time they hate standing water so good drainage is really important (just think of an Iranian mountainside).
