Luther Burbank required over 50,000 seedlings to produce this quince species. It won the Wilder medal at the meeting of the American Pomological Society in Washington in 1891; he named it after Professor Van Deman, who headed the Department of Pomology of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It is very prolific, hardy, and is regarded in many parts of the East as almost the only quince worth raising. Fruit large, oblong-pear shaped, bright yellow-orange; flesh pale yellow with a good, spicy flavor. Early ripening. Heavy bearing and hardier than most cultivars. Developed by Luther Burbank late 1800's.
