Fruitscaping™ with Quince Trees

Invite the elegance of antiquity into your edible landscape with our Quince Trees. Revered in historical and literary contexts, the quince is a remarkable fruit-bearing tree that is both a gardener’s delight and a culinary treasure.

Quince trees are hardy and adaptable, thriving in full sun and well-draining soil. While the trees flourish in cooler climates, they also show a surprising resilience to heat, making them a versatile addition to various garden scenarios.

Encased in a golden-yellow skin, the quince fruit offers a unique aroma and flavor. When cooked, it transforms from tart to tantalizingly sweet, producing delectable jellies, preserves, and pies. Or take a traditional approach, poaching or baking quinces for a nostalgic treat.

The quince tree itself is a striking feature in your landscape. With twisted, gnarly branches and bright, eye-catching fruit, it has an undeniable character. Not only are these trees visually appealing, but they also blossom with lovely pink flowers that bring a touch of springtime beauty.

Fruitscaping™ with quince trees is a journey into horticultural heritage and culinary creativity. From the moment you plant the tree, through the careful nurturing, to the joy of harvesting and experimenting in the kitchen, quince trees provide a fruitful and fulfilling experience. Begin your Fruitscaping™ adventure with our Quince Trees today.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
