Beautiful Blossoms and Irresistible fruit
Pineapple Quinces are an exotic fruits that are related to apples and pears. They are extremely popular to cook with because they have a sweet, yet tart flavor that gets sweeter when cooked with an aftertaste that’s similar to a pineapple.
These quinces are most commonly used for making jams and wines, but they’re also great for baking into pies and cooking with meat. They have hard flesh at first, but grow increasingly softer as they cook, eventually gaining the consistency of applesauce and that pairs perfectly with cinnamon.
Before cooking your quinces they can be stored in a bowl in any room of the house. Their vibrant yellow skin will add a pop of color to any space and their strong, pineapple aroma will naturally perfume the air. You’ll love entering the kitchen or dining room when your fresh quinces greet you with their sweet tropical scent.
As an ornamental tree Pineapple Quince Trees fit perfectly in the landscape by only growing to about 10 feet tall. They are beautiful accent trees, especially in the summer when soft white and pink blooms emerge all over the branches before growing into vivid yellow fruit in the fall.
The Pineapple Quince is awarded for its pest and disease resistant qualities. It’s much tougher than other quince varieties and is an extremely low maintenance tree as a result.
You won’t have to worry about your Pineapple Quince trees because they are drought tolerant, heat resistant, and cold hardy. They will thrive in the elements with vivid color while producing tons of delicious quinces.
Pineapple Quince Tree Pollination
Pineapple Quince Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Pineapple Quince Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Website ordering is quick, easy, and informational (with nice pictures). The tree arrived in super short time. The packaging was exceptional. The tree was already budding and in a day or two leaves and flowers came out. Beautiful and healthy tree! Thank you! Endre
