Quince

(Cydonia oblonga)

Fruit of the apple and pear family, but bigger. The skin colour is greenish yellow, very smooth. In some varieties it is very smooth and shiny, but hairy to the touch in others. The flesh is fairly compact, hard, floury, not very juicy, of a creamy white colour and with a very sour taste that makes it inedible raw.
