Looks as though it's a Chaenomeles Aka Japanese quince aka japonica . Don't google pink quince or you'll get an ad for size 10 Brazilian knickers not familiar with these do you layer them or take cuttings !
Seed catalogues are responsible for more unfulfilled fantasies than the web and playboy combined . (after Michael Perry)
thanks very much guys,
after some very careful googling it looks like case closed. I can't wait for autumn now to start harvesting, and spring for the lovely flowers.
Japanese Quince in Rochdale! I have a lot to learn! I've just inherited the plant but it looks like it may have self layered? I'm sure I'll be back in touch, loving the site...
Just one more pic to confirm
Yes, Japanese Quince- though I would check the variety, that one looks rather pippy and may not be much good for jelly...it may be "sargentii",which I've seen described as non-edible and does have fruits that go red with time.Now, non-edible may just mean "only good for jelly' but I would double check with the rhs or similar!
