I was a bit jealous of my mother's gardening prowess when her quince bush bore some small fruit in this last burst of warm air in early autumn. I noted that her bushes had thorns and mine did not. I love the flowering quince and of course ran home to see if mine had any fruit and had missed it. No. And no thorns either. So while the latin name was similar on the tag and we bought the bushes together, clearly they were different. She kindly let me have one to use for my still life in afternoon light on the windowsill of my studio. Mom's are nice like that.
