The Quince Tree in April


Blossom and bud.
The picture above and the one below were taken last week.



The tree today.


Now the petals are falling.
 This year's quince harvest is on the way.

  1. Do you think the tree is further on this year than last? The beautiful weather seems to have put nature into overdrive. Returning from two weeks away I thought that Worcestershire was looking so very lovely. It certainly makes comng home nice and easy x

  3. Karen, it certainly is further along than it was this time last year. Last year's post is here http://thequincetree65.blogspot.com/2010/04/weekend-miscellany.html
    and I see that it was yet to flower, buds only.

  8. Hi Sue, after a bit of gardening (for this read forest clearing, not so much wild as livid). Have rediscovered our quince tree. It's against a wall, lots of leaves but no flowers. Do you prune back yours or just let it do its thing?
    Take care, Helen x

  9. And as your tree blossoms, mine is beginning to lose it's leaves. My 2011 quince jelly is so delicious, I put it down to a very wet summer. I love the way our seasons are opposite and we get to enjoy your spring in our autumn. Gorgeous photo's xo

  10. How beautiful and delicate the blooms look on such a big tree, they don't last for very long, then to be replaced with fruit. Nature is such a wonder.

  12. Hi, I'm new to your blog, I discovered it via The Coffee Lady, another blog where I like to lurk. I have a quince tree but every year the flowers develop and then drop off completely. We have had the tree nearly 6 years and it has never successfully flowered and developed fruit have you ever had this problem I am desperate for quinces? Thank you for a lovely blog by the way xx

  13. I'm keeping fingers crossed that this year will be the first for my quince to bear fruit. In the meantime, I'll continue to envy you yours!

  14. Thank you Sue. I might give ours a bit of a thinning out even although it's not the right time of year. It seems very dense and overgrown so the sun can't get in.

    The blossoms are candy-like!

  16. I am not that familiar with Quinces in the flesh, so it will be lovely to follow how your Quince Tree grows and the fruits it rewards you with.
