This has been discussed here before, but I couldn't find the posts in my
archives - thought there might have been some discussion about which
cultivars were most productive.
My grandmother, back in AL, had a number of old 'flowering quince' shrubs,
as foundation plantings, that fruited regularly.  I suspect they were
C.speciosa, but I'm not a Chaenomeles expert, so they might have been
C.japonica.  Just the typical red-flowered form; fruits were 3-4" long,
1.5-2" in diameter; green, turning yellow as they ripenened, very firm and
very tart.  I ate them as a kid - they really 'set your teeth on edge'!
I see them in a few places around town here, and they've been planted as
shrub borders in some of the beds on the MSU campus, but I've yet to see any
with fruit, but I'm usually not there at the right time of year.

My girlfriend would like a flowering quince for the ornamental flowers 
and I would like to get some fruit.   She claims she had one once that 
fruited.   Anyone have advice on combining ornamental flowers with fruit 
production in a quince??

Best,

Jay
