Look for large, smooth fruit. Minor bruising should not affect eating quality since quinces are cooked.
Short-term storage recommendation (7 days or less)
Quinces are susceptible to bruising; handle with care.
Both water-soaked and soft spots are indications of freeze damage; store properly.
Too astringent and sour to eat raw; when cooked the flavor mellows into an earthy, sweet apple-pear flavor.
Smooth, yet firm when unripe; this fruit softens as it ripens.
Pair with cinnamon, cheese, onions, salty ham.
