Any Ideas

by Teaka53

Can anyone identify this fruit please. The bush has been growing in the garden for 20 years over the past 5 years it has had the occasional fruit on it, this it has about 20. The bush has thorns and is about 18inches tall with a spread of about 4 feet. The pips look identical to apple pips

Definitely no expert but I made some Quince Jam plucked from a hedgerow near my flat on Saturday and the seed structure, although darker in color, looks similar, as does the shape (ish) of the fruit. Mine were yellow-er though. An idea of scale would be helpful for the experts out there. Nice shots btw.

According to R.H.S this could be the variety Vranja’ AGM of the quince family.
