Quince watch 2016: May

Is this the year when I will finally have my first, edible fruits, from my Quince tree? Now that it has finally flowered, Quince watch has officially begun.

My Cydonia oblonga 'Serbian' (also known as 'Leskovac') is now about 6 years old. Last year it managed one solid hard golf-ball sized fruit. When I say solid, I mean granite solid. It was solid.

Like Alison over at The Blackberry Garden, I have hopes for non-solid fruit this year. Even, dare I suggest it, edible (jam-ible) fruit?

Is this a potential quincelet?

I live in hope. And with a watchful eye.
