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.
