The quince tree (scientific name – Cydonia oblonga) has a fruit covered with fluff like velvet. When is ripe (in October) it becomes yellow. It has a consistency of hard, taste sweet-sour and is rich in pectin, plant fibers and that’s why, when it is eaten raw, is stifling. The consumption in large quantities of seeds is toxic, because they contain hydrogen cyanide in small quantities.
