Cydonia Oblonga Leskovacka also called Cydonia Leskovacka Fruiting Quince, is the hardiest of the self-pollinating fruiting quince trees and an excellent tree for both ornamental value and fruit production! Tolerant of a wide variety of growing environments, it is an excellent choice for gardeners across the UK. Ideal as an Ornamental small fruit tree as it reaches a max height of 5 metres.
Quince trees are native to the Caucasus Mountains of south-west Asia, but have been grown in the UK since the Middle Ages, when their fruit was much in demand for desserts. Since then they have become less popular, but Cydonia Oblonga Leskovacka is a very desirable cultivar. The deciduous ovate leaves are a medium green with a velvety underside. The small pink-white flowers, similar to apple blossoms, appear in May and June, creating a lovely late spring picture in the garden. By mid-October the leaves have turned yellow and the quinces are ready for picking to be used for jellies and preserves. Even just hanging on the tree they are extremely ornamental!
Hardy throughout the UK, Cydonia Oblonga Leskovacka will grow to a mature height of 2.5-4 metres and spread of 3-4.5 metres in 10 to 20 years. Little pruning is necessary. This quince tree is self-pollinating so planting only one will be sufficient to produce fruit. Plant Cydonia Oblonga Leskovacka in full sun or partial shade in well-drained loam or clay soil with acidic to neutral pH. Tolerant of salt and windy conditions, this fruiting quince tree will do well in coastal locations, and its high tolerance for pollution makes it an excellent choice for city gardens. Deer-resistant as well, it can be planted without worries in a country garden. Mulch and water well for the first few years to encourage strong, healthy growth.
Quince trees lend themselves to a variety of planting situations. They always appreciate a little extra shelter and warmth, and thus are well-suited to fan-training against a brick or stone wall, making an attractive border to a walkway or garden space. Cydonia Oblonga Leskovacka can also be planted in a container and grown on a roof terrace or patio. Quince Trees are a natural choice in a country garden or even planted as a small orchard. In a wildlife garden they will attract bees, butterflies, and birds.
Cydonia Oblonga Leskovacka is one of the most desirable of the flowering quinces; hardy and self-pollinating, it will reliably bring its lovely flowers and golden fruits to your garden!
