Why plant Champion Common Quince Bare Root?

Those aren't yellow pears growing on that tree, those are yellow Champion Common Quinces that are ripe for the picking! Never heard of a quince before? No problem, these unusual fruits will introduce you to their kind all on their own. From the pretty pinkish white flowers to the pear-shaped aromatic fruits, Champion has much to offer. Not commonly eaten fresh, take the ripened quince and turn it into jam or jelly and enjoy the natural pink color that pops out once the flesh is cooked. In addition, Champion is a very hardy and has very few pests and diseases that care to bother with this tree. Change up your fruit list this year and be sure to add Champion to your list of fruit trees to plant.

Quinces are native to the Trans-Caucasus region that include countries such as Russia and Iran. These trees can be found growing wild in woodland margins and rocky slopes, but currently are not found very often in US landscapes. Due to the cold winters experienced in the US, many quince trees are not able to ripen the fruits, giving them an astringent flavor that disappears when cooked. If located in an area with warm winters, quince fruits can be properly ripened on the tree and eaten fresh.

How to use Champion Common Quince Bare Root in the landscape?

Champion is just that, a champion to grow. Quince trees can be particular when growing, but Champion is the hardiest of all quince varieties available to date. A self-pollinating tree, Champion will produce large fruits that have a heavenly aroma and flavor, but with another quince nearby the overall yield will be larger. With it's signature crooked branches, Champion can make a lovely flowering and fruiting hedge with the pinkish-white blooms in the spring and fruit in late fall, early winter. Braid the branches of multiple trees together to create a very unique and one-of-a-kind hedge that neighbors will be gawking at for years to come.
