With the purpose of adding value to the final product and aiming to identify which cultivars implanted in tropical regions are more appropriate for the processing of marmelade, the objective of this study was to characterize and evaluate the influence of different cultivars of quince ('Fuller', 'Smyrna', 'Portugal', 'Provence', 'Mendonza Inta-37', 'Alaranjado', 'Lajeado', 'CTS 207', 'D'Angers' and 'Bereczy') grown in tropical Brazilian regions, on the physical-chemical characteristics,

The different quince cultivars presented great variability among themselves in relation to physical and physicochemical characteristics. However, the cultivars studied gave rise to marmelades that were similar to each other, which had a high sensory acceptance, except for the cultivar Mendonza Inta-37, which resulted in a less accepted marmelade.
