The true Quince is more often a tree than a bush and in any case the flowers are white and never red. There are other more Botanical differnces too.

Or do you mean between the different varieties of Chaenomeles?

That is the fruit of the Quince, In this case Chaenomeles japonica, rather than the true Quincwe, Cydonia oblonga. Not that it matters the fruit is just as edible.

It is classed as one of the most perncious of weeds, all over the world now. It is one of the few which can and does survive the extreme heat of the professional composting regime. We have had seeds germinate in brand new non-peat compost and sadly in a peat based one too.
