History and description of Aromatnaya

Aromatnaya is a quince originating from Russia which can be eaten fresh. The fruit is bright lemon yellow in colour and has the size and shape of a fairly large rounded pear. The yellow flesh is soft when ripe with some sweetness combined with a sharp lemon tang. It is not as sweet as a sweet quinces such as Isfahan but much less acid than acid varieties such as Meeches Prolific. It is quite pleasant to eat fresh but is best used for making jellies and jams or other culinary purposes. It crops well and is relatively disease resistant.
