Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

I love quinces and they only have a short season (right now down in the cool southern states) I am hoping someone knows where I can purchase them here in sunny Brisbane so I can bake some ruby slices for desserts and make quince paste to enliven a cheese platter.

I planted a native quince last year and am hoping to see some fruit from it eventually, nothing at the moment as it has struggled, it died right down in the dry (thought I'd lost it) but since the last rain it is bushing up so there is hope.

Thanks in anticipation ...

And you didn't invite me ;)
Enjoy, my yearly yearning has been satisfied :)

I also found them at a shopping centre on Robinson Road at Aspley East.
