The Greeks and Romans considered Quince to be sacred to Venus, who is often depicted with a quince in her right hand. Suprising then, that the Quince is not cultivated more often, especially considering that it succeeds in most soils and climatic conditions. It is easily grown in acidic, fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade and in these conditions the flowering and fruiting is likely to be most successful. The flowers are of high ornamental value and attract a wide range of pollinators. The fruit is deliciously distinctive and used widely in preserves and jellies. The quince also has an important function as a dwarfing root stock, providing grafted varieties the ability to withstand cold temperatures. To order this plant please contact us email@example.com.
