Champion is a popular and regular-cropping quince, suitable for most of the drier areas of the UK.

The spring blossom is particularly attractive.

How to grow

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.
