This strange yellow fruit which looks like a hybrid of apple and pear ripens from September to October. It is not as popular as figs and there are no festivals in honour of quince. Still, the fruit is really tasty if you know recipes and how to cook it. Of course, you can eat raw quince, but in Montenegro, it is common to prepare this fruit before eating; usually locals boil it. They also make marmalades and jams, compotes and sauces, pies and puddings, so you can enjoy a whole palette of meals made with quince. Moreover, this fruit is quite healthy. It prevents allergic reactions, improves skin health, decreases blood pressure, and helps with weight loss.
