Pineapple Quince Tree


Fruit Maturity: April


Pineapple Quince are a medium sized fruit with a hint of pineapple flavour.

The fruit are more round than other quince. The skin is smooth, thin and easily bruised.


When ripe, the fruit turn golden-yellow and are very aromatic, with a hint of pineapple scent.


The flesh is white, hard and dry. When cooked the tart flesh will soften and turn pale pink and is ideal for preserves, poaching, baking, quince paste, jellies and jams.


The tree has an ornamental quality, with slightly twisting branches and attractive fragrant, white blossom. This deciduous tree has an upright spreading habit, is vigorous and a heavy cropper.


Pollination: Self-fertile


Tree Size:

Dwarf Tree: 2 – 3 m high. Depending on pruning and the tree shape these quince trees can be kept as small as 2 m in height and planted as close as 50cm apart. Must be supported on a trellis or a stake


Semi-Dwarf: 3.5 - 4.5 m high, depending on shape



Tree Care:

Trees are usually grown as an open vase shape. Prune in Winter to reduce crowding, to improve light penetration and air flow. Remove any crossing-over or inward facing branches.

Ensure there is plenty of new young wood each year, as quince will flower and fruit on the tips of short shoots formed in Spring.



Soil: Will adapt well to most soils, but heavy, moist soils are preferred to light, shallow soils as Quince will not tolerate drought.

Will do best in well drained soils. Established trees can withstand wet conditions, but will not tolerate waterlogging. Quince prefer neutral to slightly acidic soils and do not like high pH soils
