Quince 'Meech's Prolific', mid September. Named after a 19th century quince enthusiast, William Witler Meech, from New Jersey, USA. In 1888 Meech published a book called "Quince Culture" in which he stated that this variety originated from Connecticut, and was originally called the 'Pear-Shaped Orange Quince' - but it soon became known as 'Meech's Prolific'.
