I was surprised to find this fruit on the Japanese quince which are there for their flowers. It's not fruited before, or at least I've not noticed. The web says it is nowhere near as flavoursome as culinery quince.
From the neighbour's garden bamboo wind chimes ring with a muffled plunk, plunk a Japanese sound.
Reflection: 1 John 3:13 (New International Version) Do not be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.
