Chaenomeles are a genus within the Rosaceae family, native to Japan, China, Burma and Korea. They are more commonly referred to as Flowering Quince. The name Chaenomeles derives from the Greek word ‘chaino’ meaning ‘to gape’ and ‘melon’ or apple based on Thunberg’s 1784 documentation.
Chaenomeles are deciduous shrubs with an intricate framework of slender, spiny branches with simple yet attractive leaves and camellia-like bloom heads. These can form clusters or display as a solitary figure bursting into brilliance during spring. After the flowering period, fragrant yellow or green fruits take the place of faded flowers. These fruits are edible and are best suited to jam making.
