Howdy, folks...

Friends of mine are fussin'! One says this tree is a crabapple, another says not. :>)

These look more like berries to me, not crabapples. Normally around here (NC) crabapples would be much bigger and riper. Apparently this tree doesn't have "apples" bigger than this. I'm wondering if it is related to a crabapple are there types that don't produce the apples? I'm aware some of grown mainly for flowering only.

And then what compounds things it appears it may be a grafted tree, of some kind, be it crab apple or not. The suckers coming from the base have purplish leaves (this time of year) and are not the same shape as the rest of the tree. I wonder what kind of root stock it would be; course now I'm still wondering if the rest of the tree is "crabapple".

Any ideas, please?
