Plantation of the Quince:

Like most trees, the quince planting is done in the fall to promote rooting before winter and therefore get a better recovery in the spring. You can also plant your quince in the spring, provided you plan a regular watering the first year after planting.

  • The quince appreciates the sun, as much as the semi-shade.
  • It is enjoyed in all types of soil, although it dreads too calcareous lands.
  • It is cold-resistant and resists most climates.

Size of the Quince:

No size is really necessary since it will not improve fruiting.

But it is however quite possible to reduce the antlers of this sometimes imposing fruit tree.

  • The size is in winter, after the fall of the quince, or in the early spring before the resumption of vegetation.
  • Ventilate the heart of the tree to allow maximum sunlight in the summer.
  • Remove dead or diseased branches as you go.

To Know About the Quince:

This small fruit tree has long been neglected in favor of apple, pear, and other cherry trees. But its small size, the beauty of its foliage and its silhouette, as well as the tasty quality of its fruits, have brought it up to date, with great happiness!

It is also an ideal fruit tree for country gardens. Easy to grow and to require virtually no maintenance, the quince is adept. It finds its place in a small city garden as well as in the middle of the camp, preferably where the climate is not too cold.
