- This valuable Russian variety bears abundant crops of very large, bright yellow, aromatic fruit with a delicious, pineapple/lemony flavor. Aromatnaya fruit is one of the few that is sweet enough to eat fresh. Considered one of the best varieties, it makes particularly delicious and attractive preserves. The medium size, round yellow fruit needs to be stored on the window until it starts to soften. The trees are much more disease resistant than other quinces.
