In Morocco, produce is completely seasonal. This means if it's not the right season you won't find it. Before moving here I had never heard of a quince, let alone eaten one. There are a lot of quince fruit recipes but the most common here is cooked in a tajine with beef or lamb. The first time I encountered it I was hooked.
But they really do need to be cooked.
It won't hurt you but really the taste is just not that good. They can be used in similar ways to apples, pears or stone fruit. They also make a great jelly or paste. Pair that with some good cheese and I promise you will be a happy camper.
