  1. I love quinces! We had them in our garden in Greece when I was growing up. I grafted on with a pair bud when I was 12 years old and for years the tree produced both quinces and pears.
    We had two trees in our garden in Chicago as well. For 7 years. I make great preserves but don’t ask for the recipe….Its all by guessing! 🙂
    Quince is also great baked.

    Didn’t know this fruit offered so manny benefits.

    Thanks Krystina for sharing!!!!!!
