Stark Bro's Store
My family used to have a quince bush, and we made jelly every summer.
Hard as rocks, feel like granite, but very hardy and dependable. Out of the ordinary. Grocery stores don't have them.

Beautiful tree
Planted just over a year ago as part of an espalier fence - not only did it flower this year, there are two little fruits growing now and it has grown faster than the apple trees planted with it. I think I am going to find space to plant a regular quince in the back garden, this really was a pleasant surprise.

Excellent Orange Quince
When the quince arrived it was not unpacked for 4 days but when planted it grew well. A year later it has small quinces on it but we will have to wait to sample them. Our San Diego climate is not best for this quince but it does not know that and has already established itself here despite the hot dry year. I would recommend this orange quince from Stark to anybody.

Great product!
I planted it last fall and it's growing very well, bloomed like crazy a few weeks ago. I love it and would recommended especially to those who like making fruit cordials. The Quince Seeds Cordial is absolutely great and that was the main reason I planted the Orange Quince.
