Hi there,

Is this Chinese quince, also known as papaya?

I guess they are different things. The attached picture shows papaya, and what is called Chinese quince is actually this, am I right?

    Take a look at this one: Pseudocydonia

    Not to be confused with Carica papaya, papaya, which, like Pseudocydonia sinensis, is sometimes called mugua.
    Not to be confused with Chaenomeles speciosa, Chinese flowering quince, which, like P. sinensis, is sometimes called mugua.
