Okay, I will confess to really not knowing anything about quince except that it shows up every fall at my food coop. So I did some reading. Things to know: it's a fruit. Don't eat it raw, the word "yucky" comes to mind. Greek mythology associates the quince with Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Quince is also associated with fertility. There's no science to back it up, but hey, it couldn't hurt if you're trying.
