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.
