On Quince rootstock
Quince is a hardy, drought-tolerant shrub which adapts to many soils of low to medium pH. It tolerates both shade and sun, but sunlight is required in order to produce larger flowers and ensure fruit ripening. It is a very tough plant that does not require much maintenance, and tolerates years without pruning or major insect and disease problems.
A must have for any gardner looking to make marmalades, sweets and jellies — or the classic Spanish 'Membrillho' (Quince paste). They have a lot of natural pectin, a naturally occurring starch. They also make great additions to apple pies, and they're delicious when cooked with meats.
