Hi Mark,

Ed Fackler had seen them on his visit in 1995 at Mikop (as I recall) and he 
asked if I could get them in. One of the things that impressed him was the 
cider they made w/o additives. And I was able to confirm that here with some 
grown here. I have no experience with quince so can't compare them with 
other varieties currently available in this country. 

This should answer your questions.
