Yesterday we stopped at one of Fallbrook's nurseries (Subtropical Nurseries), and I got my Gem. They had it on different kind of rootstocks (on Zutano and on Dusa) Got mine on Dusa in 3 gal bag/ $32. So Happy! If someone still looking for this variety, here it is https://www.subtropicanurseries.com/ I do not know if they ship it, but you can always write them and ask. Good Luck!

" It is of course possible I could be wrong about all this, but you just asked my thoughts and opinion"
and I appreciated it. It is always helpful to know about someone else's experience and opinions as well.  Please keep sharing. It is so rare to find any kind of discussions about  quince. Many people are not familiar with it and does not know what to do with quince.
I did not have any experience growing quince in past. All I remember is eating it )) without thinking about a variety. Sometimes it was good to eat raw, sometimes it had some astringency in it. But either way I can have just a couple of raw slices, I prefer it cooked anyway. Love the smell...everything is nice about quince..beautiful blooming period, fruits on the tree and of cause that delicate smell. It is a real treat!

Interesting info,SoCal2warm, thanks for sharing. Will hope for best )) I actually wanted to graft on this tree Kaunching and Smyrna to have few varieties on one tree. Do you know anything about how Kaunching or Smyrna are doing in  SoCal climate? I also would like to see a photo of actual Kaunching's fruit to know more about a shape.  Not to many actual pictures of it in internet. I would really appreciate if someone would show it. As far as I know Kaunching is another variety that  is good to eat raw.

SoCal2warm, I wanted to thank you for all of your photos with images of flowers, leaves and fruits. It is what I always like to see, especially when trying to pick a variety.

Interesting observation... I looked for the variety Kuganskaya, on Russian web sources, wanted to find more info or photos. I never find it..)) there is not such a variety under this name in Russia. They have Kubanskaya. I guess someone made a mistake and misspelled it from the very beginning.

I'm expecting for my Karp's sweet from Raintree nursery this month. Very exited about this variety and hope it will be true to the variety. My friend recommended it as one of the best for eating raw. Few days ago I also received another young tree of "Bereczki" not really well known here, but famous Hungarian variety of quince. Very large fruits with strong aromatic smell. f Not sure if it is good to eat raw, I don't really care as I still like better when it cooked.

here is my Bereczki, and pictures of this variety when mature, isn't it adorable??!!

Hi Everyone!
I'm looking for "Smyrna" quince TRUE to the variety. I like this elongated pear-like shaped aromatic beautiful fruits and wanted to graft it on my existing plant. I need a cutting or two of a young branch (current year growth I mean 2018), flexible (not stiff) with buds that will be easy to cut and work with (about 7 mm in diameter or so)
Hopping someone from US will be able to share/sell :)

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: What citrus is this?

I have a tree with similar looking fruits on it. This tree came with the house, and we are planning to get rid of it because those fruits taste bitter and they are really small in size. They are just not edible. How are your fruits taste?
