Yes, very much so. The differences between Chaenomeles japonica (Japanese Quince) and Cydonia (True quince) are botanical hair splitting.Sad to say this year we have the best crop ever and we cannot use it as we are still eating the Quince marmalade and Quince jelly from last year.

When is a quince ripe?

Reply from Mark Partridge

Thanks Eric any advice on when they should be picked?

They turn yellowish and begin to smell very sweetly of quince. It is a bit hard to tell because they never really go soft and some types stay light green. I would say that ours here in a cold part of the West Midlands are just about ready to use.
