How to Select Quince

  • Choose quinces that are solid and free of major bruises, wrinkling, or other signs of damage. Small marks on the skin do not usually affect the fruit.  
  • You may notice some fuzz on the fruit. This fuzz will fall off as it ripens. A fully ripened quince will be yellow or golden and give off a pleasant fragrance.

How to Store Quince

  • Quinces bruise easily so store in a single layer. Any weight placed upon them will cause bruising.
  • Store at room temperature for up to a week.
  • Store in an unsealed plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
