Cydonia oblonga (Quince) 1/2 std is a large, deciduous shrub or small tree with broadly oval, mid-green leaves with grey undersides. Large, solitary, five-petal, pale pink to white flowers bloom in late spring, and edible, aromatic, round or pear shaped, bright yellow fruits ripen in autumn. Fruits can be eaten fresh, but when cooked the taste is better and sweeter. Perfect for jams, jellies, or pies. Cydonia oblonga (Quince) 1/2 std can grow in almost any kind of soil, as long as it is moist, and well-drained, but it prefers fertile, deep, slightly acidic, well-drained soil in full sun. Once established, it tolerates dry soils. Cydonia oblonga (Quince) 1/2 std trees are great as specimen plants or informal hedges and screens. They are mostly grown for their fruit. Commercial production has decreased significantly in US and Europe, but it is still a popular fruit in Turkey and some parts of Asia.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
