Do you know what a "Globe Apple" is?
I am reading a book on the pioneers in Kansas with pages from actual diaries and letters of the time.
In one diary they tell about making "globe apples" into preserves and it was a treat because the fruit was so scarce.
They were foraging, so I am assuming this was a native fruit. They also mention gooseberries, chokeberries, crabapples and paw paws in the same entry, so I know it's not any of them.
I did a google search and couldn't find anything.Maybe this is a midwest name for something?
