Siberian Gold or Serbian Gold quince?

nick_b79(4/5 Southeast MN)February 14, 2014

I recently read a letter to the editor in an organic magazine that mentioned how great "Siberian Gold" quince was for the writer in northern Iowa. I was about to pull the trigger and order an Aromatnaya quince.

The problem is, I can't find much about a "Siberian Gold" quince. I find plenty of references for "Serbian Gold" quince, however. Was this just a case of mistaken identity on the part of the writer? If so, how would you rate the Serbian Gold quince vs. the Aromantnaya?

Using the search phrase ""Siberian Gold" quince" -- but without quotes -- quite a few results were returned from the UK.

Perhaps a recent import? Or pending that status?

Write/email the articles author to ask.
