Lillie of Sprigs & Twigs ASK Feel free to send me questions you'd like to have me answer and I will do my best to address the ones of most general interest. Email or mail your questions to: info@sprigsandtwigs.net or Linda Lillie, Sprigs & Twigs Inc, PO Box 245, Gales Ferry, CT 06335 Hi Juan, Yes, quince will survive the winter in Old Saybrook and in Southern Connecticut. They will also produce edible fruits. You do have to watch out for birds, squirrels and chipmunks because they love the fruit also! Dear Linda, I just finished reading an article about quince trees, and I was wondering.... will they survive the winter in Old Saybrook or anywhere in Southern Connecticut? Will they produce edible fruits? Thanks!...Juan Quince Fruit Quince is one of the earliest spring bloomers each year and you can expect to see them bloom in April. Sometimes, if the weather is warm in November and December(like it was this year), the shrub might bloom then. If that happens, the shrub will not produce flowers the following spring and not have fruit in the fall. Quince is a great shrub that produces beautiful flowers. It has an irregular shape and will grow up to 10 feet wide and 10 feet tall. Make sure you plant it in an area with plenty of space for it to spread out. Also, try not to prune the quince. If a quince gets pruned incorrectly. it gets too thick and does not produce flowers or fruit. Good luck and enjoy your quince!
