Hello All
Sorry for delay,been a busy week.Here is the leaf,my other half tells me that last year the fruit did not turn yellow???




It is certainly not a fig leaf (it wouldn't cover anything) but it doesn't really look like quince either, does it? Are there thorney spines on the stem, Bridget?

I'm glad you knew what the question was, Bulbaholic! Looks a bit like a camellia to me.

i agree with beattie looks so much like camellia to me to but cant figure out the fruit part

They do sometimes set seed in a little "apple-y" fruity thingy.

It's Chaenomeles, probably C. speciousa of some variety, as Fractal already said previously - the fruit in the earlier pics is typical of that plant, and the plant itself should be thorny.
