Flowering Quince (Chaenomeles)
Japanese Flowering Quince cv. Cido (Chaenomeles japonica Cido)
Thornless fruit variety bred in Latvia.
Small shrub with orange flowers in spring and small, but occuring in great numbers yellow fruits that ripen in September/ October. The thornless branches make harvesting easier. Ideally make it before the first frost. The fruits have exceptionally flavour and you can use it for delicious syrup, jelly or jam.
This variety needs a second one for cross pollinization. Recommended use for small gardens.
The plants are budded on quince rootstock so they need moist, fertile soil. For good fruit quality a sunny place is favourable.
Hybrid Flowering Quince cv. Nina (Chaenomeles x suberba Nina)
Ukrainian fruit variety.
Shrubs reach up to 1m height and width, with sweeping, thornless branches. Flowers are orange. Fruits ripen in early September, are round, with yellow skin and weighing 40-100g.
Based on similar shrub habit that variety is especially recommended as pollinator for Cido, for cultivation in small gardens.
Hybrid Flowering Quince cv. Gold Calif (Chaenomeles x californica Gold Calif )
Ukrainian fruit variety with a strong growing, upright crown reaching 1,7m in height and width. Branches almost thornless. The pale pink flowers turns into big, oval shaped fruit. They ripen in mid September, have yellow skin and from 80 to 150g weight. The flesh is firm, fragrant and acidic. Use it as for Cido.
As an exceptionally productive variety Gold Calif is suitable for both plantations and backyard gardens but needs a second variety for cross pollination. All offered varieties will pollinate each other.
Hybrid Flowering Quince cv. Maksym (Chaenomeles x californica Maksym)
Our third fruit variety from the Ukrainian breeding program. Grows quite strong, but somewhat weaker than Gold Calif, reaching 1,4m in height. Branches almost thornless. Flowers are pale pink. Fruits are rounded, up to 6cm in diameter and 60-80g in weight (max. over 100g). They ripen at the end of August and are easily to tear away from the twigs. In contrast to it on the Japanese Flowering Quince they are attached very firmly, so during the harvest it sometimes occur to injure the wood.
Very productive and precocious variety, excellently suited for orchards as well for backyard gardens.
