Vranja is a popular traditional Quince that is easy to grow in the southern UK, or against a south-facing wall in northern areas. The fruits are large and attractive, with a strong quince aroma.

How to grow

Like all quinces, Vranja is best grown as an open-centred or bush-style tree. It is generally reliable but can be a light-cropper - planting Meech's Prolific or Serbian Gold nearby will help.

History

Originates from eastern Europe, introduced to the UK in the early 19th century.
