History and description of Meeches Prolific

Meeches Prolific is one of the most popular varieties of quince grown in the UK. Unlike many other varieties it gives a good regular crop in the British climate. It produces attractive large slightly pink blossom in late spring. The fruit is quite large and pear shaped. It ripens in October turning a golden yellow colour and developing a strong quince aroma. It has a sharp flavour and is excellent for making quince jelly.
