Cydonia oblonga Ludovic Quince is a slow-growing fruiting quince variety. Its lovely spring flowers, attractive foliage and autumn fruits make it a good choice for gardeners looking for a reliable fruit tree! Native to the eastern Mediterranean, Quince Trees were a favourite of the Greeks and Romans; Cydonia oblonga may have been brought to the UK with the Roman occupation, but the first recorded cultivation of Quince Trees in England was in 1275 when Edward I planted some quince trees at the Tower of London.

The dark green leathery leaves emerge in early spring, followed by the pale pink to white fragrant blossoms in late May, borne at the end of stems. Bees and butterflies are attracted to their nectar. The flowers are followed by rounded, apple-shaped fruits which ripen from green in summer to a green-gold shade in October and November. The fragrant fruits can be used in cooking and even to perfume a room.

Hardy in most of the UK, Cydonia oblonga Ludovic will grow to a mature height of 4-5 metres, although it can be pruned to maintain a smaller size if desired. Quince Tree Ludovic should be pruned in late winter or early spring in a manner similar to apple trees.

Plant Cydonia oblonga Ludovic in full sun in a sheltered position to ensure the best ripening of the fruit in autumn. It will thrive in any moist but well-drained soil enriched with plenty of organic matter. Sensitive to salt, it will require protection from sea winds in coastal regions, but is very tolerant of pollution, so it will thrive in city gardens. Country gardeners do not have to worry about protecting Quince Tree Ludovic from deer.

On a large roof terrace, a row of Cydonia oblonga Ludovic will create a pleasing privacy screen with the bonus of the fragrant flowers and fruit. One specimen in a container will benefit from the shelter of a courtyard or sunny patio garden. Quince Tree Ludovic is a natural fit in a country orchard or garden, since it is both ornamental and fruitful.

Cydonia oblonga Ludovic is a lovely and useful tree for country or city gardens; it has not only attractive foliage and fragrant spring blossoms, but can be expected to produce a large crop of quince fruits which can be used to make jams and preserves! 

Cydonia Oblonga is the family of fruiting quinces grown primarily for their fruit. The ornamental or flowering quinces are a different classification known as Chaenomeles – e.g. Chaenomeles Superba Pink Lady. Lots more choice in our Fruit Trees collection.
