    Looks like it could be a Pyracantha Firethorn. Does it have really long, sharp thorns on the branches?
  • No it didn't have thorns

    I think that might be a Crab Apple tree.

    Thanks @nishaabraham. Maybe a Cotoneaster tree? It’s a bit difficult to ID from what I can see clearly and without seeing the whole tree. Im sure others will come along with suggestions.

  • @Songbird-1 Yeah sorry the picture isn't great, my mum just sent it to me and asked me to find out what it is :smiley:

  • Another vote for Malus...a Crab apple.
    Easy way to check for yourself is to cut a fruit round the centre.the equator.
    It will have a star shape in the centre with 5 pips.....just like a big apple.
