Quince 'Serbian Gold' 9L

  • Catalogue Code 1070-9404
  • Pack Contents: 1x 9L potted tree

Earlier ripening season of late September than most varieties. On semi-dwarfing rootstock, this makes a perfect patio container tree. Will thrive even grown in containers in full sun on a balcony. As it’s self-fertile it will fruit readily even grown in isolation.

Fruits make fantastic jelly to accompany delicious dishes in autumn. Whether quince jelly accompanies game recipes or the finest of cheese, it’s delicious and packs a punch.

If growing quince ‘Serbian Gold’ in containers be sure to keep it well-watered, watering in the mornings and evenings from spring through to autumn, and well- fed with a high-potash feed when the fruits begin to develop.

Pot on into a larger container the first or second spring after its first year, introducing a rich, loamy compost like John Innes No 3, high in nutrients and with a good soil texture.

Prune only to keep the tree healthy and well ventilated and with an even framework. Cut out dead, damaged or diseased branches as they arise.

Supplied as 9 litre pot
