Champion is in flowering group 2. Champion is partially self-fertile, but fruiting will be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby.
Important: advice about pollination
Champion prefers a dry location with a southern aspect - but is more tolerant of wetter conditions than other quinces.
Although considered self-fertile, in practice cropping is improved if there is a compatible pollinator - try planting Meech's Prolific or Serbian Gold nearby.
