A small tree closely related to the quince with unique small fruits a bit like oversized rosehips that are eatable rather then edible. There is lots of discussion about this, but really it's for it's beauty that most people grow it. It has a unique twisted shape and very ornamental green / bronze leaves which overlap to form a canopy. Forms a small tree with beautiful large single white flowers in spring. Matures in March with the quinces, but then need to 'ret' by sitting them on the sill for them to become edible.
