Chaenomeles Speciosa Nivalis

Chaenomeles Speciosa Nivalis  (Chaenomeles Speciosa Nivalis)

My white version of the Chaenomeles ( japanese Quince). All of the colours produce fruit which can be used for making jelly.

I've never seen a white one. I didn't know there was such a thing to be had. It's lovely

There is another named Jet Trail. Oyashima has double white flowers and Toya Nishiki can have red, pink and white flowers at the same time. I do not have any of them.

I had an orangey one in my previous garden. It was a dwarf variety I think . It died when I moved here :o(

I think they are lovely flowers and sometimes you get a second flush towards the end of the year. They all have fruit too.

Yes aren't they called quince ?

Yes they are. Japanese Quince. When I first got interested in gardening a knowledgable friend told me to learn the latin names of plants or I would end up with a lot of inferior stuff I did not want. Her husband gave me my first quince a red one, Crimson & Gold, which I still have. The fruit has more Vit C than oranges and you can make marmalade from them.They also have very high levels of pectin, needed to set jam.

I've heard of quince jelly but never tasted it.
I like to learn the latin names aswell.
