Quince......Chaenomeles (Chaenomeles speciosa (Flowering quince)Pink)

This has been flowering on and off for months, so many blooms this year, so lots of quince jelly, all being well!!

Does the fruit taste ver similar to a 'real' Quince do you think? I have used one in an apple crumble..a Japanese one..and it did taste quite similar I think. Hopefully I shall eventually be able to make both and compare!

It is a lovely warm colour. It's a lovely plant altogether, including the fruit! :)
