Bereczki is a traditional culinary pear-shaped quince variety, originating from eastern Europe. The large attractive fruits have a juicy acidic yellow flesh, which turns pale red when stewed.
Bereczki can be used for all culinary purposes including making quince jam and jelly, and adding extra flavour to other dishes.
Bereczki is not as well known in the UK as the popular Vranja, but is quite similar and makes a good substitute.
