Fruiting Quince

For the first time my Japanese Quince, Chaenomeles x superba `Crimson and Gold`, has set fruit after flowering. The Shohin Quince flowered for the second time this year a few weeks ago, and one flower have now set fruit. I have only a guess that it is the weather who makes the setting of a fruit possible.

Japanese Quince, Chaenomeles x superba `Crimson and Gold` with fruit setting.

Normally the tree drops the flowers and there are no fruit production. This year has been warm and steady, so I now look forward to see further development of the tree with fruit.

Photos shows the tree when flowering earlier, and the fruit is recorded today.
