|I have two ornamental Quince and I have two neighbors that also have them. This Fall, I collected the fruit from all four plants. Most was fairly ripe, some had already ripened fully and fell to the ground. From all, I collected the fruit and today harvested the seed.|
Most of it looked very good - some was still a bit too moist so I am going to allow to dry. I tossed maybe 10 % of the seeds which were rotten, very moldy or just otherwise junk.
Anyone grow this from seed?
I will be stratifying my seeds over probably 60 days and plant in February in my basement grow area.

|Store your seed in damp peat (in the fridge) till March 1st, then use Trudi Davidoff's wintersown technique to germinate seed.|
Set your wintersown jug or tote outdoors in the cold and wet. Treating shrub-tree-woodland plant seed like they are tomatoes will only disapoint.
Cut off most of your WS jug to allow seedlings to grow about May 1st.
