The quince has been cultivated for centuries. It bears fruits that have been known since the time of Ancient Greece by the name of "Cydonian apple" or "Cydonian pear", after the ancient city of Cydonia on the island of Crete. Long ago, the hairy appearance of this fruit gave rise to the belief that the use of quince would promote hair growth.
