Harvesting Quince Trees

Are you ready to enjoy delicious homegrown fruit? Harvest is the time to enjoy the results of your hard work. Keep a few things in consideration as you reap the fruits of your labor: the best time to pick the fruit from your tree, and how to store the fruit.

NOTE: This is part 11 in a series of 11 articles. For a complete background on how to grow quince trees, we recommend starting from the beginning.

When to Harvest

Harvest season begins September thru October depending on the variety and location. Start picking when they turn a golden yellow.

Annual average yield per tree is 1+ bushel.

Storage

Fruit will keep up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Wrap in paper towels when storing in the refrigerator. Do not store with other fruit, since the strong aroma will taint other fruit flavor. Fruit can be stored up to 1 to 2 months if enclosed in plastic bags or containers in a cool place.
