Quinces: Help! My quince tree is laden and now the branches are bending. They are a bit high to stake so am I best to take some of the fruit off?

And can I do anything with unripe quinces please?

On plant Cydonia oblonga 'Vranja'



Pick some of them and place in a cool dark shed. They should ripen for you.

thanks - I wasn't sure if I needed to put them in a warm spot or a cool spot!
As I have around 30 quinces I don't want to waste them.
