Saw some quince fruit at the MN State Fair this week!
The sign said this was the first time they'd ever been shown at the fair. What pissed me off to no end was that I had planted an Aromatnaya quince two years ago that was growing very well, only to see it killed this spring by gophers eating the roots! That could have been my quince fruit up there! :-(
Anyway, I didn't see a specific variety listed on the placard. Does anyone else know what variety this might have been? I was going to replace my quince tree next spring (and buy some gopher poison), but want to know if there's a better choice than the Aromatnaya for our climate.
