When I was a kid, the neighbors had a quince apple tree. At least thats what I called it. It was old, and about 14 feet high. It sprawled out like a bush. The fruit was light green and the size of an apple. Never ate one. I was told they would pucker up your mouth. My mother made what everyone called quince honey from the fruit. It was about like jam. It tasted pretty good. I've never seen another quince since then.

quince pods? quince fruit looks like what uncle will said. you can eat them raw or do whatever you want. they're pretty hard, and better cooked.
