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 wonder what they are and what they taste like?" This is what it looked like.

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

I then cut the fruits open.

Quinces are 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.
