Basic idea for Pruning:  Most fruit trees should be pruned in frost-free periods mid to late winter. (apricots best after bud break) Remove most vertical branches and shorten side branches. Fruiting wood is best on horizontal to 45 degree limbs. Learn more...

At 2 orchards in north-central coast California, this quince has it's strengths and drawbacks. It is precocious, heavy-bearing, reliable bearer. It ripens first of our cultivars, which is great for farmer's market. It blooms last, which leads to it's drawback: it blooms during warm weather, and gets fireblight. Fireblight should be less of a problem withIn sight of the Pacific Ocean, or farther north where fireblight is not a big problem, since fireblight spreads like wildfire when it's hot during bloom.
