Quince is quite adaptable to any soil, and shows good tolerance to dry conditions once it is established.

If pruning is desired, do so immediately after flowering in spring. Remove oldest stems every 4-6 years.

All of the Double Take™ series has demonstrated exceptional heat tolerance, blooming weeks longer than conventional varieties. They also have shown a strong tendency to rebloom in fall. These thornless varieties do not set fruit.
