Like many quinces, Serbian Gold has some ornamental value, with the wood, leaves, pink/white blossom and fruit all being attractive.
The fruit should be picked towards the end of September in the UK, and then stored for 1-2 months at room temperature to ripen.

It is also is one of the hardiest of quince varieties, but even so try to plant in a sunny aspect if possible. Training against a south-facing wall is a good idea, as this will promote good quality fruit as well as being an attractive garden feature.
Serbian Gold is self-fertile and no pollination partner is required.
