abejaruco. So that is what a quince growing looks like. Interesting. I think when I was a kid our neighbour had some kind of quince, but I don't think it was that large, and I remember it being green (was probably unripe). My brother took a bite of one on a dare and I have never ever in my life forgotten that look on his face. My brother is a dare devil, he will do anything, just offer a dare to him and he is right on that band wagon.
He is also the one that threw eggs at a car while we were sitting on a hill above the road -- the car stopped and he and I ran off down into the bushes. He stepped in a hole and broke his ankle. It took him three days before he told our Mother. Man was he in trouble!!!!! Poor guy, spent the summer in a caste on his leg with pins in his ankle to hold it in place.
Have a wonderful day, beautiful life we live. Cindi
