Quince Trees

Brown Areas in Quince Flesh.

Anonymous added on April 12, 2018 | Answered

We have a Serbian quince tree which for the last 2 years has been laden with loads of perfect looking fruit. Upon peeling these freshly picked unblemished quince, however, there are large areas of brown flesh within. My questions are : what is causing it, what can I do about it, and is it harmful to eat ? I have searched the Internet for answers and found nothing. This year I sprayed the foliage with an anti fungal before the blossom appeared.

Brown core can be caused by extended wet weather.
It is not caused by an insect or disease.
The flesh does darken quickly when cut, this is perfectly safe to eat.

Brown markings on the skins is very normal also.
