When Is a Fruit a Blossom?

When it is a fruit.

A Well-Petalled Quince!

It is aromatic, too…

…so much so that when a little is added to apple pie or applesauce, it lifts the whole flavour up.

I’m going to try to make some marmalade, because, after all, it was originally made from quinces, or Marmelo in Portuguese.

And that’s a grand thing, too!

Long live the quince! (And blessings in advance on the marmalade.)

  1. Have you read “The Japanese Quince,” by John Galsworthy. It’s about an ornamental quince, but. . .

    There’s also a short section by David Creaton (The Beasts of My Field?) about a quince with its roots in the outhouse that I remember.

    No quinces here in Quick, B.C.
