Thanks for the crabapple suggestions, Lucky. The fruits are elongated,  
ranging from 3/4" to 1 1/2" or even a little larger. Deep, deep  
reddish-purple. I have a pan of them cooked up, awaiting the food  
miill, and the whole thing is deep crimson. The tree itself is  
certainly fully grown, and unless it has been pruned carefully, it is  
not at all unkempt. After a little looking online, I think Dolgo is it.  
The applesauce is spectacular, and sweet enough to enjoy without sugar!

Thanks again.
