The recipient was thrilled but I was disappointed that the trees weren't labelled up - it was only the fact that they rang me and could recognise the quince that they found out what was what. This is the second time I have ordered this as a present - the first one was clearly labelled etc. Think you need to ensure people know what they have received!

this was a gift. perhaps a little more information about the trees would have been nice for the recipients, e.g. as the are an ancient variety a bit of background about them, and climate and harvest times etc would have been good

We think that Quince and Medlar trees have been overlooked for far too long and deserve to be as popular today as they were in years gone by.  Both of these beautiful trees will bring flourishes of snow white blossom to your garden and a bounty of unusual fruit into your kitchen.

The eccentrically-shaped Medlar makes the most delectable fantastic rose coloured jellies, and is so pleasingly unsuitable for the supermarket shelves that very few people are lucky enough to try them.

 Rubenesque Quinces can be roasted, transformed into tasty jams and included in Middle Eastern Cuisine. They are beloved by the Spanish who produce delicious Membrillo, a sweet and golden quince cheese.

This is one of the newest products to our range, introduced in 2012 and we are pleased that it has been a hit with our customers ever since.
