Good News- Found quince! Bad News- It'll cost you!

If you've been reading about our quest for quince, you know we found some - after a long and arduous search.

My local grocery store FINALLY started carrying quince, much to my delight! I saw a basketful of rather small, but healthy-looking quince, with no price. I found the produce manager - the one who thought persimmons were quince- and asked him "how much?". Of course, he didn't know, and had to check.

Upon his return, he grinned and said, "Too rich for my blood!"  "The price?" I asked. $3.29 each!

And I thought $2.99 each at The Fresh Market was over-priced!

What does quince cost in your area?


  1. I am almost embarrassed to answer. About $1 a pound in the LA area. I feel so bad maybe I should ship you some.

  2. Thanks, Ara, I appreciate your thoughtfulness. You are so kind to even suggest that.
