The fruit of a shrub (Cydonia vulgaris) belonging to the same tribe as the apple. It somewhat resembles an apple, but differs in having many seeds in each carpel. It has hard flesh of high flavor, but very acid, and is largely used for marmalade, jelly, and preserves.
Similar to apples.
yellow skinned fruit looks and tastes like a cross between an apple and a pear; astringent, tart flavor when raw; high pectin content makes it ideal for use in jams, jellies, and preserves
