"Дюля" is how quince is called in Bulgarian. This large yellow fruit comes in late autumn. You can also find it in shops during the winter. It grows everywhere, but usually, this fruit is grown in villages.

The flesh of quince is yellowish, low in sweetness, juicy, and pleasantly acidic. It is very aromatic and has good taste. Dishes from quince are extraordinarily tender and very fragrant. Bulgarians cook jams with this fruit, while some country's restaurants offer a stunning quince dessert.
