The mature height of Rich’s Fruiting Quince Tree may be dwarf but the fruit is huge! Skin is lemon-yellow and as fragrant as the best quince varieties. Rich’s is highly adaptable to most climates and has natural dwarf growth habit.
Prized for their fruit and for their ornamental value, our unique flowering quince varieties are an attractive complement to your yard or garden. Very hardy shrubs growing four to six feet in height or less, they are early
