Grape Trees?

I work out at Camp Swift, between Elgin and Bastrop, TX. Part of my duties include patrolling the interior roads to provide assistance to National Guard units training there. While driving I've noticed Muscadines growing along the creeks. There is a pomegranate growing along the outer fence(I think someone threw it out). There is this grape tree growing in the interior area of the property. Can anyone point me in the right direction to identify it? Thank you in advance.

Prunus, probably Prunus mexicana or Mexican plum (native and edible). There is lots of free food out there if you know what to look for!

Awesome, Thank you so much. After work today I will have more pictures of berries and different plants :)

RE: Grape Trees?

I would like to grow these and am looking for some seeds or fruit of the Mexican Plum (Prunus mexicana).

Thanks, Pax
