 About the Quince Paste

Since ancient times, quinces have been cultivated in Spain and considered a symbol of love and fertility. In Greek history, it was the custom of the bride to eat a quince on her wedding night in order to give respect to the gods of fertility. Greek mythology states the effectiveness of the quince’s properties against poisonings and evil acts.
