Isfahan quince trees

  • Pick: Late-season (late October)
  • Flowering group: 3
  • Self-fertile
  • Uses: Eat fresh | Cookery 

Isfahan is an unusual quince from Iran. Unlike most quinces, it is naturally sweet and can be eaten fresh from the tree.

Like all quinces it is also a useful fruit for the kitchen - use it for jams, jellies, and for flavouring spirits.

Isfahan also has ornamental appeal, with attractive spring blossom, green/grey leaves, and the trees often have an elegant appearance - and of course quinces are some of the most beautiful fruits when hanging on the tree in the autumn.

Pollination guide for Isfahan

Isfahan is in flowering group 3. Isfahan is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby. Since it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other quince trees.

Important: advice about pollination

How to grow Isfahan quince trees
