Ingredient Mission Impossible: Quince

What's a girl gotta do to get her hands on some quince? Ever since I stumbled upon Martha's recipe for quince biscuit pie, I've had quince on the brain. But finding those nubby little buggers at the market has been a real chore. Having resigned myself to the fact that I was unlikely to find them in my local produce aisle, I expanded my search online. But still, no luck! Not even good old Harry and David can sell them to me. It appears my best bet is to order a sapling from Europe, plant it in my back yard, and wait 2-4 years for it to begin baring fruit.  Anyone out there have a quince hook-up they'd like to share?

Unfortunately, I do not know where to find quince. But I suspect I'll be on a similar hunt for persimmon. I ate some in California and fell in love.

Oh! Persimmon sounds wonderful. Please let me know if you find any.
