Quince — crops, varieties, properties

Many household plots are rich in various types of fruit trees. Usually these are apple trees, plums, pears and cherries. A lesser known, but also very interesting plant with extremely valuable fruits is the common quince. During the flowering period, it is decorated with beautiful flowers and fruits. How to grow it and what properties do its fruits have?

General characteristics of quince

Quince, also known as cydonia oblonga, is a member of the rose family. It comes mainly from areas of Asia such as Iran, Transcaucasia, Turkestan and southeastern Arabia. It was brought to Europe, and its crops can also be found in Poland. In the natural environment, quince fruits grow on large shrubs up to 8 meters high. In Poland, this height does not exceed 3 meters. Quince ordinary has shiny oval-shaped leaves with a diameter of about 5 cm and white or pale pink flowers growing singly. Its fruits have a sour and strongly aromatic taste and firm flesh. They look like apples or pears with a diameter of about 6 cm — depending on the variety, they have a slightly different shape. Inside the fruit are yellow seeds. Due to the sour taste, raw quince fruits are unsuitable for consumption. However, the preparation of various canned foods is very often used, incl. jams, jams, marmalades, honey, juices, compotes, wines or tinctures. Due to the high content of pectin, quince fruits are used for gelling various dishes.

Growing quince

The common quince is a low maintenance plant. Needs warm, moderately moist, well-drained and fertile soil with slightly acidic pH (5.9-7.0). It tolerates drought quite well, but too low temperatures or heavy rains have a negative effect on it. It is recommended to plant quince in autumn in a sheltered place with plenty of sunlight, and then water abundantly. Fertilizing her bush with well-decomposed compost has a positive effect on her development.

In temperate climates, quince is planted from vegetative cuttings or grafted wild. Planted in early spring and autumn. The plant should be placed in a pre-prepared hole of the same width and depth, about 30 cm. Before planting a seedling in a hole, cut its roots, and after planting, sprinkle with soil and gently knead. It is important to water a freshly planted plant abundantly. The distance between seedlings should be a little more than 3 meters. Depending on the variety, 5 * 5 is assumed for a bush and 6 * 5 for a tree. In the case of autumn planting, the plant should be covered with a so-called trunk. mound, which should be removed after the frost has passed.

Pigwa a pigwowiec

Cydonia oblonga is often confused with a plant that has a very similar name — quince. These are two different plants, and the main difference between them is the size of the fruit, which is much smaller in quince.

Bit — price

Quince and quince fruits cost from PLN 8 to 13 per kilogram, and their dried counterparts can be bought for about PLN 9-11 per 100 g. Quince juice is slightly more expensive, since its price is 2 -25 PLN for 500 ml. It can be purchased mainly from pharmacies or herbal stores. Quince teas cost about PLN 5-7, while 200-gram jams usually cost PLN 7-9zł.

quince varieties

The most popular quince varieties are listed below:

  • Berechka is a variety of Hungarian origin, it is a fairly strong tree, characterized by large pear-shaped fruits.
  • Ursynovskaya — Has a moderately strong growth, has the ability to regenerate in frosts that occur in winter. The fruits are large, apple-shaped.

    Back of pants on head, sleeves on legs! How Quince Zile from Ape «slightly» saves the planet

    Back of pants on head, sleeves on legs! How Quince Zile from Ape «slightly» saves the planet

    Photo: Jānis Škapars/TVNET

    Back on the head, pockets on the back, trouser creases on the arms. It is this kind of «upside down» clothing created by Aiva Zile from used jeans and men’s shirts — so unusual that you see it once, and immediately cut into your memory. Over the course of seven years, Quince has converted almost one and a half tons of used clothes into designer clothes, which otherwise would have ended up in the trash.

    Quince made a small fashion revolution a few years ago not in a metropolis oversaturated with fast fashion, but in a real village, where there are no seductive fashion brands, no jungle of supermarkets, even nowhere to wear high heels.

    We are heading straight through Vidzeme to one of the smallest towns in Latvia — Ape. Look wherever you want — landscapes like in the paintings of Purvītis. I don’t understand how Ape got the status of a city at all: several streets, small private houses, one more or less large store — and that’s all. There are only a little over 800 inhabitants in the town, which would be a sin to complain about a clean, natural environment. Bears wandering from Estonia are definitely a local problem, not a decline in the global consumption rate.

    However, it is here that dresses and coats of the sustainable fashion brand Zīle are created in the attic of a private house converted into a workshop — so unusual and unique that it is impossible to confuse them with the creation of another designer. Moreover, everything happens for real — Quince sews clothes herself, with her hands.

    The evolution of fashionable thinking

    Snowdrifts dot the gray winter landscape outside the window: there, beyond the pines, is already Estonia, and on this side in Iva’s workshop is a pyramid of jeans, a ridge of men’s shirts. Fu, rags, we would have thought and indifferently passed by, but Quince not only sees beauty in things that have served their time, but can also breathe new life into them — so breathtaking: wow, yes, how stylish!

    Quince says that she is from «an even bigger village than Ape» — from Zeltini near Aluksne. However, she has been living in Apa for 30 years since she got married. «There was a sewing workshop in Apa. She said that I was tired of sitting at home with a child — I want to work. I learned to sew there, and for some time — about 20 years ago — we had our own sewing workshop and a fabric store in the city. Then they sewed » like normal people». But there are as many people in Apa as there are, and half of them are relatives, friends, acquaintances.

    A friend comes and says: «I went to the hairdresser, I don’t have enough for a dress.»

    The idea was to sew for people as cheaply as possible, so the business did not last long. I decided that I would leave sewing, but it kept coming back to me. And then, when I tried to be a normal seamstress, I knew that I liked to remake used clothes more.

    But it really started about eight years ago, when a cousin brought Aiva a bunch of used jeans with the words that «they might come in handy, do whatever you want. » Quince did not know about the harm to the planet created by the world of fast fashion, and such concepts as redesign and upcycling were alien to her, but it was a pity to throw away beautiful jeans with pockets, fasteners and stripes. This is how the first «redesigned» coats made from used jeans appeared on the design stand of the charity shop Otrā elpa. They did not go unnoticed.

    Now Aiva is one of the few Latvian upcycling designers with her original style and recognition outside of Latvia. I must say: despite the fact that ecological fashion is prestigious and is becoming more and more in demand, we have few truly eco-fashion designers. In addition to Quince, also Kristine Kaleja (Pārtapis brand) and Velga Krukovska (VelgaCode).

    In the West, on average, people wear only 25% of their wardrobe, but new clothes are produced in such quantities that they do not have time to sell out. It is estimated that 85% of all purchased clothes end up in the trash every year.

    On average, our wardrobe lasts three years. If you increase the life of clothes by just 9 months, then the water pollution created by the production of clothes will decrease by 30%.

    Love men’s shirts

    Not only Quince’s clothes are friendly with the environment, but also her lifestyle. «I’m the only vegan in Apa,» she laughs, and treats us to a vegan coconut milk sweet dish. Taste fantastic! Quince has been a vegetarian for a long time — for a long time she did not dare to take a step further, since you are in a small town where all «people are like people», with your herbalism you annoy relatives and friends who put Russian salad, carbonade and a cake with whipped cream on the table.

    There is a white fluffy hat on the shelf among the clothes. Not a hat — a cat curled up in a ball! Or rather, the cat Minna, who strayed a few years ago and has not left. Minna is a cat that needs to be taken care of. “Once she lay down and didn’t get up, a bloody tear ran down her cheek. They took her to the veterinarian, and it turned out that she had feline AIDS. She needs to be injected regularly,” says Quince. In turn, Munch the Tiger Zile is lying on the floor like a fluffy decorative element and looks more like a raccoon than a cat.

    It is clear that Zīle’s business is not oriented towards the local public.

    «It’s actually ridiculous to call it a business,» says Quince.

    «This is not a profitable event, but ideas. To sew something like this, there must be a different way of thinking.» If a few years ago it seemed that in order to wear Zīle dresses and jackets, you must have an «artist’s gene» or at least a normal sense of humor, now among dress shirts you can find classic models that will suit both in the office and at a meeting government.

    Two years ago, there was a breakthrough in the history of Zīle — in Riga, on Avotu Street, Aiva opened the Zīle concept store. So that fashion gourmets can inspect, feel, try on clothes, and yes, to think about the fact that recycled clothes are something more than a piece of rag — they can have designer added value. But then the covid came and drew a line under a successfully launched initiative: the store withstood the first wave of the pandemic, but not the second. It turned out that the covid crisis put an end to things much more «going» than the subtleties of fashion — the cross-border alcohol business: the alcohol store in Ape was closed. Now the Zīle clothing collection has almost completely moved to the virtual environment and you can buy it in the Zīle online store. Quince says that thanks to her eldest daughter Agnese, who now lives in Norway and takes care of brand recognition from there, she is no longer just «a provincial seamstress who has sewed several dresses.»

    Every day 200 thousand tons of textiles are thrown away in the world. In the US alone, more than 13 million tons of clothes end up in the trash every year.

    We not only create textile waste, but we also spend huge resources on the production of clothing. On average, 1000 baths of water are spent per year on the production of clothing per family.

    40% of the produced clothes do not end up in stores, but are thrown away immediately, as defects are detected.

    Feeling, ruffling, twirling, examining Quince’s clothes. Dresses made from men’s shirts keep a masculinely harsh romance, but in general they contain a story about freedom, permission and what it means to love life, not to submit to the global hysteria of consumption and the dictatorship of fashion. The collections of dresses have the names of the heroes of the series — for example, Leia from Star Wars, Arwen from The Lord of the Rings, McBeal from Ellie McBeal. Design magic! The straight silhouette of a men’s shirt has turned into a voluminous dress with ruffles and flounces. «Our butts for men’s shirts are too wide, so Leya appeared. Arwen is warmer, with velvet details. For those who don’t like frills, there is a classic long shirt,» says Quince. To create one dress, she pairs two or three shirts.

    Who would have thought that frills turn a wide men’s jacket into an eccentric laconic coat.

    A pair of patches and the depressing gray vests that once served as bank uniforms carry a completely different message.

    In the Iva collection — mainly clothes for women, the men’s line is quite small — for the most daring and artists. No, the husband does not wear the coats created by her, he is able to spoil even the best — they are so inappropriate for his essence. However, Quince’s brother was one of the first to agree to throw the jackets created by his sister over his shoulders.

    Aiwe’s men’s shirts and jackets seem prettier than women’s.

    «That’s how the inside is finished, how many pockets and details, what a thin fabric. Do men evaluate their clothes themselves? And throw this away?!» Yes, that seems to be the case.

    What’s in our heads?

    How does this happen? Click, click — Quince cuts with large scissors without a ruler and chalk. «When you’ve been sewing for 20 years, what a line! If I were sewing a wedding dress, it would be different, but this story is about freedom. » There are dresses that are created as if by magic — within a few hours, others take a week to work on. “Sometimes shirts have a defect that needs to be cut off, or there is a previously unnoticed stain on the finished dress. This is how a pocket or frill appears on the dress. They make the coolest dresses.” Dresses made from men’s shirts cost between 50 and 70 euros. Yes, it’s expensive, but that’s the point!

    «Price means responsible shopping — no need for someone to buy a bunch of dresses «cheaply» and then just as easily throw them away.»

    Moreover, each dress is handmade in one copy. «They say people in Latvia can’t afford to buy expensive clothes, but that’s not true.» We, like stunned loners, buy mass fashion clothes: they scolded — threw them away, scolded — threw them away, and the wheel of samsara of consumption is spinning faster and faster. However, Quince’s plan is for the woman to meet her dress and feel beautiful in it. Since Zīle dresses are unusual, this is a three-way cooperation. «The designer who created the shirt, me and the one who wears it. If everything fits together, then the result is beautiful.» Those who opt for altered clothing are celebrating their individuality and green mindset while expressing contempt for fast fashion.

    Three pairs of men’s jeans have evolved into coats. I tried on a denim coat with warm trim embroidered from a blanket. Soft, warm, comfortable! «Warm coats have one problem — they don’t wear down,» Quince says. Jeans are clothes that can be worn for years. even for decades. Over time, jeans wear out, but do not lose their attractiveness. However, fast fashion requires more and more new models of denim, which needs to saturate the market.

    We throw away old jeans and buy bleached and torn jeans instead. Stupidity!

    To create the desired effect, the manufacturer throws dirt and stones on the denim. «What’s on our minds if we take our worn-out jeans to a thrift store and buy new ones instead — even more worn ones. »

    • Nowadays, fashion is changing at lightning speed, and only jeans have not gone out of fashion for 170 years. The first jeans were brought to America in 1853 by a Bavarian-born man named Levi Strauss. They served as work clothes for Californian farmers and gold miners. The pants had one drawback — the seams on the pockets were not strong.
    • In 1864, Riga-born inventor Jacob W. Davis immigrated to New York.
    • From the moment Levi Strauss and Jacob Davies received a patent for blue jeans with copper studs in 1873, jeans have been on a never-ending march.
    • To create one pair of jeans, you need about 7,000 liters of water, three kilograms of pesticides and chemicals, and about 13 square meters of land for growing cotton.

    Pink shirts and 50 shades of gray

    Most of the men’s shirts and jeans that come to Aiva are unsold clothes in Otrā elpa. Quince doesn’t throw anything away. Bundles of flags are created from shirts in poor condition. Quince says that black and green colors are the least friendly to nature, since the most chemicals are consumed to obtain them. Her collection is dominated by gray — all 50 shades. «I sew everything in gray, because everything that is gray seems beautiful to me,» she laughs. In turn, there are quite a few orange, green and brown clothes. It turns out that soft pink shirts are popular among men in Latvia. These are the ones who dominate among those donated to charity in Otrā elpa.

    On the other hand, green shirts are a rarity.

    Quince mainly sews dresses from cotton shirts, but it happens that 100% cotton is mentioned on the label, but experienced seamstress fingers say no — not completely.

    Quince also likes linen, but when she found out how harmful dyeing of this fabric is, she no longer raises her hand to buy colored linen fabric to sew dresses. «When you start to get interested and find out how dirty textiles are, it becomes sad. I’m not rich, but I’m glad that I have Zīle, which is like a drop in the ocean, but I realize that I’m doing at least something to protect the planet. Yes : Zīle — small, but still a stick in the wheel of consumption samsara.0005

    Zīle alters about 600 shirts and 100 jeans a year.

    Overall, over the years, the small business has recycled over a ton of used clothing that would have ended up in the trash.

    “Until production figures drop, much will not change much, even though experts say that the world has only 50 harvest years left, as agricultural land is depleted and forests are being cut down,” Aiva continues. “And covid has not taught us anything.

    How many years have passed since we realized the harm of plastic, and in the store the seller tries to put your box of salad in a bag anyway, and if he fails, the cashier will try to do it again.

    You come from the store and see that everything — bread, cheese — is in plastic.
