Meech's Prolific quince
Meech's Prolific is a historic American variety of the common quince, discovered in Connecticut around the middle of the 19th century and named after Reverend William W. Meech, who first introduced it as the "Pear-Shaped Orange Quince" in an 1883. Tasted raw, the Meech's Prolific is intensely tart, but quick-cooked it has a bright strong taste with a pleasant piney tartness, like a pineapple or mango, with caramel and pear notes. Its quick-cooked texture is soft and sweet, and it keeps a bright, clear yellow color. This is an excellent quince variety for preserves or jelly.
