Quince 'Vranja' (patio)

Cydonia oblonga

An attractive tree with beautiful rounded silver leaves and pretty green-pink flowers in spring. The large, fragrant, pear shaped fruits that follow ripen to a lovely shade of yellow, and can be harvested from October. Freshly picked quinces are bitter and inedible, but once cooked they soften to make excellent jams and jellies, and enhance the flavour of apple pies when a few slices are added before cooking.


Quince 'Vranja' is propagated onto 'Quince A' rootstock. It is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Height and spread: 4m (13').


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.

Medlars will begin to fruit 3 or 4 years after planting. Root wrap plant supplied. Height and spread: 4m (13'). Rootstock: 'Quince A'.

Estimated time to best yields: 4 years.

Apple 'Spartan'

Malus domestica

A juicy, refreshingly sweet apple that is instantly recognisable by its deep maroon colour. Apple ‘Spartan’ is also an excellent pollinator for other apple trees and so is extremely useful in any collection. Later to ripen than some varieties, the fruit will happily sit on the tree for two weeks or more before needing to be harvested, meaning you can spread out your picking and not end up with too many at once. Height: 4m (157"). Spread: 3m (118"). Rootstock: MM106 More info
