Quince looks like a pear. I have been told that it is a cross between an apple and pear. But I really am not sure. My friend had a tree with a bunch of them on it, and I thought they were pears, anyway, I wasn't sure if they could eat them. I know they love pears and apples both. And with it being christmas, I thought they might like a different treat, but I can't seem to find anything on the internet .
