Anyone know what kind of fruit this is?
It is very hard, smells somewhat like a apple, irregular round shape.
Quince or flowering quince fruit?
That will be my guess too.Is the plant thorny? Brady
Yes, looks like a quince.
I have lived here for 7 years now and was investigating my yard when I see all these little round things growing everywhere. Even at the tops of trees. It makes a canopy of my whole size yard. I have never pruned or done anything in my yard except my small flower bed. But I guess prior tenents planted a bunch of stuff. From walnuts to honeysuckle. To grapes?? Is that what they are? They didn't grow big at all theye arelike the size of crabapples. They have a seed inside. How do I even begin to take care of the vines if that's what they are? When right now it goes in the tops of trees and near ground
The orignial fruit is definately an old fashioned quince. Please google how to use them, as they are not handled like apples but make wonderful jellies. They bring a king's ransom at the farm markets here, if you can even find them. I have quince trees and had a huge crop this year.
Making sauce or juice uses lots more quince. Can handle like apples in both cases.
First 2013 picking on my semi-dwarf tree was 165 pounds, lots more left yet to ripen.
Definitely Quince but quite a small fruit. Tony F.
Doesn't seem small to me at around 4.5 inches in diameter.
A typical quince fruit is softball-sized like the one above; some varieties average larger yet.
