Quinces, specifically Karp's
I have two Karp's sweet quince trees which I purchased from Raintree Nursery and planted about a year ago. They're supposed to grow in this zone .
I know very little about quinces and what to expect from them. These never completely lost their leaves over the winter. But they are starting to put out new growth. We've had about 300 chill hours this winter and will likely still have some nights in the 40's before the season is over.
Does anyone have quinces, especially Karp's?
What should I expect from them this spring as far as flowering, growing, and fruiting? Do they flower before leaves come out? When does this happen? (There were no flowers or fruit last year but I didn't expect any since they had just been transplanted.)
Any special tips on care?
