Produces pounds of sweet, aromatic fruit.

Van Deman Quinces are related to apples and pears. They are a tropical fruit with bright yellow skin and unique flavors that are quickly becoming more and more popular in the culinary world.

Once harvested and cooked Van Deman Quinces have a spicy and sweet flavor with a subtle tartness that makes them perfect for complimenting meat, using in dessert recipes and for making preserves.

Van Deman Quinces are extremely popular in Europe and the Mediterranean for cooking, and you can use them to impress your family and friends with an exotic new recipe you cooked up in your own home.

Aside from having many culinary uses Van Deman Quinces are highly aromatic. They have a rich fragrance that smells like a mixture of pineapples, pears, and vanilla.

Place a few quinces in your windowsills and once the sunlight hits them they will naturally sweeten the room.  Acouple of well-placed Van Deman Quinces will have your home smelling like a fresh tropical get away.

Every spring the huge, pure white, cuplike blossoms that emerge all over your quince trees will delight you. They fill the landscape with a perfumed floral scent that lets people know that spring has arrived.

In the fall bright yellow Van Deman Quinces will cover the trees, shining out with an alluring glow. Before harvesting tons of delicious quinces you can admire their dazzling fall display.

Van Deman Quinces grace the landscape as attractive ornamental trees, and provide the world’s most flavorful quinces for cooking. For these reasons they are selling out fast!

Be sure to order yours today, before they are all gone.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Van Deman Quince

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

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 Van Deman Quince 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 Van Deman Quince again after the transplant is complete.
