DALL'ORTO, Fernando Antonio Campo et al. Frutification of the quince tree cv. Provence. Bragantia [online]. 1985, vol.44, n.1, pp.509-514. ISSN 1678-4499.

This paper relates the behavior of 'Provence' quince trees at Tietê Experimental Station of the Instituto Agronômico, State of São Paulo, Brazil. This quince variety has been improved mainly to be used in European countries, particularly in France, as pear rootstock for the growing of dwarf pear trees. It is not commercially grown for its fruits utilization. However, it was recently observed that four-year-old 'Provence' quince trees, in the first crop, yielded an average of 4,750kg/ha of high quality fruits. In the some plot, similar 'Portugal' quince trees, the main commercial variety grown in the State of São Paulo, yielded only 2,021Kg/ha. Besides the good characteristics of vigor and fruitfulness of the 'Provence' quince trees, its fruits showed to be an excellent raw material for industrialization as jam of superior quality.

Palavras-chave : 'Provence'; quince tree; frutification; jam.
