Description:

Did you know that the quince fruit is a symbol of love, fortune, fertility, intelligence, beauty, consistency and immortality? Famous men such as Hippocrates and our own ancestors made use of quinces in a variety of ways to treat health problems, for example, diarrhoea, fevers, as a stomach tonic, nervous complaints, insomnia, gout, for external and internal inflammation, wounds, chapped skin, coughs and bronchitis.
Today we know that approx. 100 g dried quince can contain 40% of our daily requirement of vitamin C, 37% of our daily potassium requirement and 22% of our daily iron requirement [1 and 2].

Dried quince contains the same nutrients as fresh quince, in a concentrated form. That’s why dried fruits are indispensable for a balanced diet.

Our organic quinces are whole slices, containing no fruit or pip bits, but with the skin. They taste slightly sour and are very aromatic and fruity. The colours vary between dark yellow, orange and pale red. Their consistency is slightly soft, the skin being somewhat firmer.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic quinces exclusively from Uzbekistan / Samarkand. Large parts of the region are certified for organic farming and are worked by the local organic farmers at harvesting time only. The farmers in this area have complied with organic cultivation criteria for many years and are proud of their contribution towards sustaining the natural balance.

After harvesting, the quinces are washed, pitted and cut uniformly into slices and then gently dried using solar energy. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.

The quinces are pressure treated in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
