Other Fruit & Nuts





Planting Position


Originating from Serbia during the 1800s and introduced to the UK during the early 19th century. Vranja is a traditional, popular Quince that produces large, pale greenish-yellow fruits. The fruit is prized for the fragrance it adds to an apple pie or indeed a meat dish.  It also makes a beautiful pink jelly which again works with meat or puddings alike.  Cooked further to a more solid paste creates the famous quince cheese which works delightfully with any strong cheese, in Spain this paste is called Membrillo and is eaten with Manchego cheese. An incredible strong fragrance to the fruit! Pretty clusters of pinkish-white flowers appear during the Spring followed by noticeably larger beautiful silver leaves.
