The ancient fruit of quince, known as membrillo in Spain, is thought by many to be the apple from the Garden of Eden. It is a fall favorite of mine and brings me back to the eastern Mediterranean or North Africa, where sour fruit is paired with grilled meats. Quince is a cross between an apple and a pear with an astringent tart flavor and honeysuckle perfume on the nose.
