We moved into this house where there are several crabapple trees, some olive vines and this strange tree that stands about 25′ tall with several trucks that stem up together. The “fruit” that this tree produces look just like green apples in all aspects except that the length is elongated and not round. The rhine is like leather and the fruit is hard as a rock. The smell and taste is that of an unripe green apple. Here is a picture of the “fruit”
