In researching, I think Asian Pear, but your help will be appreciated.
The fruit is very sour.

Chaenomeles sp. or Cydonia sp?

I think it is more likely to be a species of Chaenomeles, japanese flowering quince. If so, the taste of the fruits should be somewhat pungent.

vngarden, you have culmanized hours of search. Chaenomeles hits perfectly. The fruit looks like what we had.
I have cut all away any over 5' tall and all side limbs.The fruit was heavy with blight. Hopefully fugacide will correct that.
They are blooming now (mid Jan) and we are now in a week of overnight 20s.
The flowers are as pictured.
