Arrived okay, but still with a couple bruises; only one quince remained unbruised to allow to ripen on the counter over a long period of time, but the others were just fine to slice into and bake for a tasty treat. I’m not docking any stars for that— honestly I’m amazed they all arrived in edible condition to begin with (after preparing them, of course). Quinces really do need extra padding between each fruit to help prevent bruising, even if it means higher shipping costs for the customer; it’s one of the major reasons you never see them in most grocery stores, which is sad because if grocery stores were as stocked with fresh, unbruised quinces as they were with other fruits, it would carry such a lovely aroma when shopping…
I am not sure of the variety, but it is still raw after three weeks we've received it, unable to eat it or make anything with it.
Hard to find fruit and just the right ripness
