Help identifying an apple bearing bush?
 
A co-worked gave me the infamous, "Hey you're good with computers" line. So I immediately wondered what was next. Anyway he said he has this bush in his front yard that bears no more than 3-4 apples a year but has no idea what it's called. He said it's an actual bush and not a tree. Roughly 3 feet tall and the apples are yellowish. Smaller than a normal red delicious. The place is his grandmothers old house and they've been eating the apples for years.

Anyone have any idea what this is actually called?

What does being good with computers have to do with apple bearing bushes?

Probably a Quince bush.

"Apple bearing bush" Eve?

What your friend has is probably a mongrel plant. Tell him to just enjoy it, and don't worry about what it's called.

Unless you give a picture, it'll be awful hard to tell with the one bojillion species of apple trees in existence.

Basically, all trees can be bushes, and all bushes can be trees. The bush probably was in tree form long time ago. It probably died back for some reason (weather, insects, disease) and then numerous suckers appeared, making it look like a bush.

I said the same thing but he has no digital camera. Yeah go figure. Sorry about the late responses. I'm subscribed to the thread but never got an email about it *shrug*.
