QUINCE PRODUCTION & SALES

​Our quince (cydonia oblonga) plant was established back in 2012 at an area of 3.25 hectares in the middle of Hungary next to Kecskemet. The plant consists of 4 species:  Vranja, Lescovacz, Konstantinapel and Triumph which are continuously harvested between September and November.
 
Annual expected yield is between 20-100 tons - depending on the weather conditions of the given year - which can serve the needs of small to large customers. 
We have experience in quince export of large quantity and high quality (sales to Germany, Austria and Slovakia), and can help in administration and transport from Hungary as well.
