Taste features: Fruit with a sour tasteMain properties:
The quince is a fruit similar in shape to the pear, with a hard and very aromatic pulp.
This fruit stands out for its potassium content, although it also has tannins, pectin, fiber, vitamin A and B7.
Being too hard, astringent and sour, it is not usually eaten raw, that is why it is consumed cooking it, frosted, in jam, compote and pudding. In Spain, the quince is cooked in equal parts with sugar, resulting in the traditional “quince meat”, which is often consumed with nuts or cheese.
