These trees do not fruit until the fall, for the last remaining birds before they head South...

Crab apples so that's what they are called. We use to call them cherry apples as kids. They don't taste too bad either, but I wouldn't eat a lot of them.

They make a good jelly, not jam which Americans call jelly. They are a pome fruit and very rich in pectin, like apples and quinces. Quinces make good jelly too, nice flavour, even though they are like cardboard to eat fresh. Apples are not good fro jelly, not enough flavour, but are a good base fro rose hip jelly.
