‘Aromatnaya’ QuinceCydonia oblonga 10-25'
A small tree with aromatic fruit shaped like a cross between a pear and an apple. Usually eaten in stews, marmalades and jellies. Fedco grower Carol Armatis gave us jelly she made from this cultivar, which she has growing in Newport. It was fantastic! Citrusy, fragrant with an orangey-pink hue—not like anything we’ve tasted. Sometimes added to hard cider.
Large white to pink flowers. Wood of mature trees becomes impressively gnarled and twisted. This hardy Russian variety was bred for disease resistance, yet is susceptible to fireblight. Ripens in October in central Maine. Z4/5. (3-6' bare-root trees)
