Chaenomeles Speciosa Moerloosei, commonly known as the ‘Japanese Flowering Quince’ and a recipient of the Prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit is a bushy deciduous medium-sized shrub. It has dark green oval leaves and beautifully fragranced white flowers tinged with pink which appear in Spring. These are then closely followed by edible green fruit which turn to golden yellow when matured towards Autumn. The fruit is very bitter if eaten raw but makes delicious preserves or jellies when cooked.
