What does quince taste like ?
Having spent all afternoon clearing another corner of my jungle like garden, I found I've inherited a flowering quince bush.
My question is, what does quince taste like ? .... I know you can make jellies and jams from them, but is it worth the effort ?

Thanks for all the responses.
And thankyou for pointing out that what I have is probably not suitable for eating either ! I'm assuming it is a bush rather than a tree as it's about 6-7 ft tall and equally wide (well, it was till I pruned it !).
Shame, because the real thing sounds as if it's worth trying ..... the (rotten old) fruits I found festering under all the undergrowth looked like little knobbly yellow pears.
