The tree of the quince (Cydonia oblonga) is cultivated in warm and dry regions around the Mediterranean Sea and in the Middle East. The fruit has a yellow hairy peel whereas the pulp is quite lighter with a yellow-white colour. The taste is bitter with just a slight sweet savour, therefore it is often served together with added sugar such in the typical Spanish dessert quince bread (“Dulce de membrillo”) or as in compote (“Cotognata” in Italy). The variety Wranja, with its stronger taste, is our choice for the sale.
Production area and harvesting
The production of the fruit takes place especially in the south of Spain in the region Andalucía. After the harvesting, that begins around the second week of September, the quinces are deliverable until the end of December. The fine hair on the peel is removed before they are packed up into boxes.
We offer the quinces loose or in single layer in cardboard boxes.
