Different taxonomic classifications of the family has been proposed based upon morphology, whilst Schulze-Menz (1964) suggested a new family classification into subfamilies: Maloideae
, Amygdaloideae, Rosoideae y Spiraeoideae based on chromosome number and fruit type (LONGHI, et al.
Quince (Cydonia oblonga Mill.) belongs to the Maloideae
subfamily of the Rosaceae family, which includes apples and pears, all of them commercially important fruits.
