Chaenomeles japonica - flowering - quince, Japanese - quince (H)

This morning, while on my constitutional, I saw a bush in someone's front garden with some fruit on it and thought "I'll have one of those!" This is what the bush looked like.


When I got home, I took some photos. I nicked another Crabapple for comparison.


I then cut the fruits open.


Quinces are very sour, but the frosts had sweetened it somewhat so it was edible raw. A checkout lady at the Co-op told me that it was a Japonica Quince later in the day.

You ought to take part in a contest for one of the greatest
