Quince is a unique and flavourful fruit that is perfect for adding a touch of sweetness to your meals. It has a round, pear-like shape and a yellow-green skin that is slightly rough to the touch.

Quince has a firm flesh that is slightly gritty in texture, and a tart, floral flavour that is similar to a cross between a pear and an apple. It is a versatile fruit that can be eaten fresh, or used in both sweet and savory dishes.

One of the most popular ways to use Quince is in preserves, where it is cooked down with sugar and spices to create a thick, spreadable fruit paste known as quince paste or "membrillo." It is a traditional accompaniment to cheese in many parts of the world, and pairs particularly well with tangy, sharp cheeses such as Manchego or Roquefort.

Quince can also be used in savory dishes such as roast lamb, where it adds a sweet and tangy flavour to the meat. It can also be baked into pies and tarts.
