Quince is a small deciduous tree that bears a pome fruit, similar in appearance to a pear, and bright golden-yellow when mature. Throughout history the cooked fruit has been used as food, in many ways, especially to prepare desserts. The tree is also grown for its attractive pale pink blossom, its elegant fuzzy foliage and other ornamental qualities. Quince is resistant to frost and requires a cold period below 7 °C to flower properly In Europe, quinces are commonly grown in the southern, drier countries, also because the tree does well in rocky, dry areas.

Here in Canarius we offer a potted plant, grown in peatmoss or coconut fiber.

What do we ship?

Here in Canarius we offer a 0,7 - 2 m tall grafted tree, grown in a certified nursery. Temperate trees will be shipped bare rooted during the coldest months. Some trees are small enought to fit in the box. Some are too tall, so they will be pruned before shipping to a height of 80-100. Don't be scared by this pruning because your trees will soon come back as they are all very vigorous specimens.

Temperate trees from the Canary Islands?

The Canary Islands are located in the subtropical belt, but the term subtropical really makes sense only for the areas at low altitude. If we give a look to mid or high elevations, we will find a Mediterranean to Temperate climate, with possible snowfalls in winter above 1200 m elevation. Therefore, temperate fruits and berries, like apples or raspberries, can grow quite well in this land of mangos and bananas. Some local traditional cultivars of temperate trees are only found in the Canaries, such as many fig trees, peaches, apricots and more. Some of these are low-chill varieties, that require less cold for their growth. They can take hard frost such as their relatives but they can still set good fruits in Mediterranean to Subtropical areas.
