The quince is the sole member of the genus Cydonia in the family Rosaceae. It is a deciduous tree that bears hard, aromatic bright golden-yellow pome fruit, similar in appearance to a pear. Ripe quince fruits are hard and tart and seldom eaten raw, but are processed into marmalade, jam, jelly or alcoholic beverages. Wikipedia

The fruit is not as notable as those of C. oblonga, which is why most gardeners choose it for the ornamental blooms.
