    Japanese quince?

    You can make jelly with the fruits if you leave them to ripen some more.

    Thanks for the reply, couldn't find anything in Google. 

  • Yes, they look like unripe Japanese Quince to me too ... Chaenomales japonica ... I used them to flavour apple dishes and also with dishes like roast pheasant or guinea fowl.  The cut up fruit remain pretty tough even when cooked, but they impart a wonderful flavour to the meat and a sauce made with the juices.
