Untitled[edit]

A pronunciation guide for the word would be nice. I've never heard it used in conversation, so I don't know if it's /kwins/ or /kEEns/. 65.5.3.112 19:33, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

I have heard it pronounced as Kwins.

Why it turns red[edit]

Anyone know the chemistry? Why does quince turn red? Please no hearsay. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.244.163.200 (talk) 12:49, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Pronunciation of Quince[edit]

This is easily found at Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary. Pronunciation: 'kwin(t)s. But OED lists /kwɪns/ (note: no /t/) for both the American and British pronunciation.--ABehrens (talk) 07:54, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Content[edit]

The reference to a cough remedy made from quince pits is interesting, but the bit about the remedy's being alcohol free and 100% natural is unneeded editorializing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.255.22.38 (talk) 22:35, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Bible[edit]

I was always told that it was really a quince and not an apple in the story about Adam and Eve, that apple was a mistranslation. There is a mention in this article about the Song of Solomon and that the reference in it may have been to a quince instead of an apple, so is it true about the story of Adam and Eve, does anyone know the Hebrew words for quince and apple and which word is really in the bible? Are apples even native to the Middle East? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.182.142.254 (talk) 22:09, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

As far as I know there isn't even mention of what fruit it is. It was just later assumed that it was an apple. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ericius (talkcontribs) 17:07, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
The Biblical Hebrew word is תפוח tappuaħ, but that doesn't occur in Genesis at all (only in Joel 1:12, Song of Songs 2:3, 2:5, 7:9, and 8:5, and Proverbs 25:11). One traditional Jewish interpretation was that the Genesis story was referring to a fig... AnonMoos (talk) 07:21, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
I've heard that the fruit was probably a pomegranate. But I guess we'll never know for sure...

A topic of ....[edit]

Salacia oblonga has been added based on the topic of Salacia (genus)--124.78.215.100 (talk) 12:08, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Removed link[edit]

I've removed a link that was just added:

The information on that page is not up to Wikipedia's standard. The most glaring problem is the picture of "flowering quince" that is some other genus entirely. Perhaps if that page improves the link could be re-added. Nadiatalent (talk) 14:20, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Unexpectedly?[edit]

From the article: and even combining them, unexpectedly, with leeks.

Why is this unexpected? Isn't it normal to prepare for example curry sauce with apples or mango and onions or leeks?

(subscription required)→ subscription true[edit]

((U|Nihiltres}}, as always I appreciate you cleaning up after me. But tell me: why this? (subscription required)→ subscription true.

I add {{subscription}} to a source on purpose to indicate to the majority of readers that this unfortunately (!) is not open access. why do you make it disappear?--Wuerzele (talk) 08:05, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

English variant[edit]

Someone went through and changed the variant of english from US to British a bit ago. Just changing it back
