    Maintenance Notes: 

    Double Take quince needs little in the way of regular maintenance. If pruning is required, do so after blooming ceases in late spring/early summer. Flowers appear mostly on two-year old wood, so do not prune too heavily. Fertilize, if desired, in early spring, when the ground has thawed.

    In cold climates, plant in full sun for the very best flower color. In warmer areas, some afternoon shade will help flowers last longer. 

    Fun Facts: 

    Double Take quinces often rebloom in fall for some surprise color late in the season.

    • I own 5 of these fruit trees/bush and the first year in the ground one flourished with so many flowers. When the fruit came on I was sceptical on how they would taste. They took all summer to grow and ripe but OMGsh, they made the best preserve ive ever eaten. I wouldn't recommend eating them raw, but once they are cooked you'll be surprised.

    • I love Proven Winners, but it was the first and I think the last time I will order online. I preordered 2 Quince plants and I’m disappointed. They are very small. The smaller one even look sickly, and I don‘t mean because of being a little bit dried out during shipment. On top of that, it was delivered upside down, so some of the branches broke in half. For over 100$, I would go to the nursery next time.

    • I bought this plant about 5 years ago. It is not 5 feet tall and absolutely my favorite plant in the garden!! The density of beautiful deep green leaves and the sweet soft peach flowers is amazing! Needs no care at all! I can't express how much I love seeing this come back from the long cold winter each year to fill my first view of the garden with such delightful old-fashioned little flowers!
