General description

General description: This Serbian quince is also known as De Leskowatz or Lescovacz.

Flowers

Flowers: The flowers are showy, about 5 cm in diameter, white or slightly pink in colour and wonderfully fragrant. When in full bloom, the fragrance can be detected from several metres. The flowers are frequented by insects looking for pollen and nectar. The quince tree can grow alone because it’s self-pollinating. The flowers of this variety are very resistant to spring frosts.

Blooming

Blooming: Leskovac blooms quite late in, May/June.

Leaves

Leaves: The leaves are large (around 10 cm long), oval, silky and soft, glossy, dark green, slightly tomentose and greyish on the underside.

Fruit

Fruit: Leskovac fruit are large to very large, apple-shaped - spherical and slightly flattened. The entire surface of the fruit is rippled, with clearly visible corrugations near the sepal. The flesh is yellowish-white, juicy, sweet and pleasantly tangy, with a delicate aroma. The fruit ripen in October. They should be left on the tree as long as possible to achieve the right taste and aroma. Quince shrubs or trees bear fruit in the 4th year after planting and yield abundantly. Quince seeds are poisonous and should not be eaten!

CultivationRequirements

Cultivation requirements: A warm and sunny position is the key to delicious and healthy fruit. Leskovac feels best in fertile humus soils with a slightly acidic pH. Attention should be paid to the moisture level, which should be high enough, due to the short root system.

Pruning

Pruning: Samyl responds very well to pruning and shaping. If pruning to form or restrict growth, this should be done at the end of winter. This shrub produces many root suckers.

Overwintering

Overwintering: Leskovac is frost hardy (it tolerates temperature drops to -30°C). Young plants can be damaged by frost in severe winters, so should be protected before winter by a mound of bark.

Origin

Origin: Serbia.

 Limitations

Limitations: Quince seeds are poisonous and should not be eaten!
