Beautiful! Beautiful! I don't know what tree it is but for some reason it reminds me of Crabapple ... although I haven't seen a crabapple tree since I was a youngster, growing up in Va. so that's just a wild guess and probably way wrong. *Blush*

I agree with Lin.
Looks like a Crabapple to me.

hmm, maybe it's not Crabapple ? Don't Crabapples produce fruit in late spring or early summer? It's been 48 years since I've seen one but I thought I remembered fruit in early summer Confused but then my memory ain't what it used to be. Green Grin!

Okay, we'll ask questions. Thumbs up
How large is each fruit?
Cut one opened please. What's inside? A single pit or several seeds? How many seeds.
(I feel like a teacher getting ready to give a pop quiz on Tuesday. *Blush* )

Edited to add:
Malus 'Harvest Gold' crabapple has yellow fruit in the fall. Could that be it?

Crabapples can hang onto their fruits through fall into winter although others drop them earlier. There are still fruits on some trees around here.

The tree is several blocks away, it's night time and it's raining...thusly, unable to access at this time, tomorrow is supposed to bring a couple more inches of rain so I probably won't be down that way tomorrow either.

Each fruit is about a 1/2 in dia.

Plato and I included walking by that tree in our itinerary today.
Once home we got on our scrubs, grabbed a scalpel and proceeded to open a specimen, the results -

Thumb of 2015-11-19/jmorth/e7ed05 Thumb of 2015-11-19/jmorth/021ca4 Thumb of 2015-11-19/jmorth/b0fffb


Thumb of 2015-11-19/jmorth/671e0d Thumb of 2015-11-19/jmorth/56a4a4

Single seed recovered; repeated experiment on another berry, same results.

It does still look like a crabapple to me too, the seed is not central as it should be if it was the only one.

It looks like there's room for at least 2 seeds though I only found 1 twice.

Yes, it's the seed arrangement looking multiple that makes a difference to the possibilities even though only one was present because not having a central stone/pit eliminates trees that have drupes as fruits.

Update -
Open and dried a seed pod/fruit and was rewarded w/ more than one seed, so, the pods carry multiple seeds after all.
