  • Product Information

    The quince has quite the reputation. Plutarch has his character Solon decree that "bride and bridegroom shall be shut into a chamber, and eat a quince together”. 


    Cervantes’ protagonist in El licenciado Vidriera develops the delusion that he is made of glass after he eats a quince. 


    Quince trees are planted in the Balkans to symbolise fertility, love and life.


    We’re here to confirm that all you need to expect from our Quince Jelly is deliciousness: no need for a marriage or concerns about morphing into glass or needing to think twice about fertility, love and life. 

  • Quince Musings

    “In early spring, the beginning of the special season of love, the five sepals of each quince flower bend back from a remarkably firm bud, which is pointed, and at first less pink than brown. The bud swells and stands erect, opening to its rose-like shape of tender pink, each petal lightly netted and veined.” The Goddess of Love by Geoffrey Grigson
