The Secret is Out!

Here's why the Smyrna Quince is a Smart Addition to your Garden:

  • Attractive green foliage with large showy blooms
  • Grows well in cool tropical locations and colder regions alike
  • Large, bright yellow fruit great for baking or for use in homemade Jams
  • Excellent producer. Fruit stores longer than most varieties.
  • Convenient mature height of 8-15 feet fits easily almost anywhere you plant it.

The Sweet Smell of Success

As soon as you've packed down the last bit of dirt and welcomed your new Smyrna Quince Tree to your garden, you'll step back and admire one of the best planting decisions you've made in a long time. Rich, green foliage flanked by giant, cuplike flowers flood the tree in a show of springtime brightness. Enormous, soft white petals seem to blush with muted hints of lavenders and pinks. If it looks familiar you've probably seen them in ancient world paintings and mosaics including those at the ruins of Pompeii.

Very popular in Europe, the secret is out in America where the tree's popularity is only just beginning to take off. Now you can be among the few but growing number of satisfied owners who've discovered the beauty and grace of the Smyrna Quince.

Lady Marmalade at your Doorstep

The fruit of the Smyrna Quince is as interesting as the tree itself. As the multitudes of large, apple-shaped fruit begin to proliferate throughout your tree at summer's end, a fresh, sweet scent will accompany them. The brightly-colored, yellow fruit are like bursts of sunshine pouring out among the dense green leaves. When they ripen in September, you can follow the lead of some of the greatest chefs in Europe, who commonly use Quinces in cooking and baking.

But the best treat of all are the deliciously flavored jams and marmalades this highly aromatic fruit will enable you to dream up. In fact, the very first marmalades ever made came from the Quince. Not surprisingly, the Smyrna variety was a sacred fruit in Roman mythology symbolizing health, happiness and fertility.

Brighten your day-and your garden or landscape. Order your Smyrna Quince while they're still available. The word is out on this rare beauty.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Smyrna Quince Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Smyrna Quince Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Smyrna Quince Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Smyrna Quince Tree again after the transplant is complete.
