The quince (play /ˈkwɪns/), Cydonia oblonga, is the sole member of the genus Cydonia in the family Rosaceae (which also contains apples and pears). It is not to be confused with its relative, the flowering quince (Chaenomeles). It is native to rocky slopes and woodland margins in south west Asia.[2] It is a small, deciduous tree, growing 5–8 m (16–26 ft) tall and 4–6 m (13–20 ft) wide, and bears a pome fruit, which is bright golden yellow when mature, pear-shaped, 7–12 cm (3–5 in) long and 6–9 cm (2–4 in) broad. The fruit is edbile when cooked, but the tree is also grown for its attractive pale pink blossom and other ornamental qualities.

I didn't even know!! It's the same thing as knowing that Maori is a Polynesian language... it just sticks in the brain and is really helpful for filling out crossword puzzles.

"I know that something very strange Is happening to my brain.
I'm either feeling very good Or else I am insane.
The seeds of doubt you planted Have started to grow wild
And I feel that I must yield before The wisdom of a child.
And it's love you bring,
No, that I can't deny
With your wings,
I can learn to fly,
Sweet young thing."

I had no idea. But then again I am not a fan of fruit spreads.
