The Pineapple quince is a medium sized, knobby round shaped fruit that has a smooth, yellow skin when ripe. The Pineapple quince possesses a tender white flesh with a slight scent and flavor of pineapple. Although when eaten raw, the fresh fruit is tart and chalky. Pineapple quince are therefore best suited for cooking, being used for poaching, preserves, or roasting, as this process brings out the sweet flavor and rich perfume of the fruit. Pineapple quince may turn a dark rose color after cooking, depending on the amount of tannins in the fruit; the higher the tannins the darker the color will be.
Pineapple quince are available in the fall months.
