Ah, that's better. I'm 99% certain that they are unripe or nearly ripe quinces. They should make excellent jelly :)

Quince! Euphro beat me to it :) Was the 'smells nice' clue that gave it away. They're meant to be grown with apples, though I don't know why.

paintist says:

I think that they are not ripe yet...although they have all fallen from the tree/bush thingy......

Euphro says:

They should ripen on their own if you keep them inside for a while :)

Never seen a quince before. Read it up. They are so fragrant you can use them as room deodorisers? boil up the seeds to make a gum arabic? you WILL be busy.

Oh, and baked quinces with lime cream! Just core them and drizzle them with a touch of honey and white wine before baking.
