We recently bought a new piece of land and found three of these trees in it. They are all in a row, near the old homestead where other fruit trees are located so were probably planted. The ripe fruit looks like a large olive. This is in south central Oklahoma. Does anybody recognize this tree?

It is jujube! Now that I was brave enough to taste one, it does taste just like apples.

My friend gave me some a few years ago, and now that my memory has been jogged, I remember the taste. I'll leave the pears for the deer, but now have a snack to take in the blind! Thanks for the help!

Looks like a buckhorn. Or that's what we called them.

It's not a nut its a soft fruit and they are greenish yellow before they ripen.

Almost looks like what wild plums are up here, but doubt that's it.

Tlhbow- they are not native here. The place we bought had a lot of fruit trees and flowers that were planted by the previous owner. The jujube trees do seem to thrive here though.
