Plant the new Quince Revolution
Before planting 2 quince trees i did a bit of research. Historically quince were more popular than apples during the settlement of the "colonies". The quince of those times were quite different than today's variety. My quince trees have been thriving in our western Colorado sunny zone 5a/b climate. Sadly, no where in my research did I turn up anything about deer feeding on these trees. I'm here to tell you that our resident herd of Mule deer fed on my trees and ruined their nice shape. However - as the trees grow taller the branches will be out of reach and until then I'll keep the hog wire cages around them.
I planted my tree last year in the early spring. It had several flowers which resulted in the setting of three quince. Only one made it to maturity and it was great. Several neighbors asked what type of tree it is! They liked the leaves and the reddish-maroon bark. No special growing requirements besides watering once a week. I live on the 5C/6Z border zone and the quince is planted in clay soil.
