Our Feedback

Just to let you know my order of 5 plants arrived safely. I am really pleased with them as I have always wanted the more unusual plants instead of trying to grow from seeds but unfortunately I have not been able to source them within my local area. The service you provided was excellent, the packaging was sturdy, the delivery charge was very fair and they were delivered very quickly. I also appreciated that the plants had been watered well in preparation for their journey. Thank-you so much. Kind regards
Susan Lear, Dudley

Produces very large rounded fruits with a good aroma and flavour - making it perfect for jam, jellies and wine.

Originating from Persia and Turkestan, Quinces are often regarded as intolerant of wetter soils; fortunately Champion is far more forgiving and will perform in all but the wettest soils. In fact Champion is possibly the most reliable of all Quince varieties, suffering from very few pests and diseases (though like other Quinces, Quince Blight can sometime be a problem - but can easily be controlled with a copper based fungicide).

  • Season of use October - November.
  • Self Fertile.
  • Grown on Quince A rootstock for an ultimate (un-pruned) height of 8 - 12 feet (2.4 - 3.65 metres) but can easily be kept at a height of 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 metres).
