Growing in North Central FL. Photos taken Oct. 26th. It's something planted for landscaping at a commercial complex.

A crab apple, perhaps? The leaf veins do not look right, however.

Yes, I see what you mean Porkpal. The veins just aren't correct for crabapple.

I'm not good at this but could it be cleyera?

Thanks but no, it isn't. Cleyera has smooth leaf margins.

Not recognising those black buds.

Not sure about it being apple.
Try to cut a ruit in half through the equator.
It should look like this...

Don't think leaves right for glossy evergreen Cleyera.

Thanks Silversurfer but I'm not where the plant is. I was at an outpatient surgery center & was still somewhat under the influence of the anesthesia or I would have thought to pick one of the fruits & find out what's inside. I wasn't thinking right. D'Oh!
I'm sure though that it's a crabapple. Very commonly used in commercial landscape plantings here.

I don't have time to research it, but could it be some sort of Pyrus calleryana aka Callery Pear? Shrug!

I debate about Pyrus calleryana ...but the leaves don't look right.

I've been seriously mulling this one over. I found some photos where the leaves are not so heart shaped and to quote above post " heart-shaped to ovate" which lends credence to the fact that the leaves in my photos could possibly be Pyrus calleryana with more ovate shaped leaves. Take a look at this photo:
http://s3.amazonaws.com/tneppc...
Those leaves match my leaves BUT examine the fruits...... the fruits in the linked photo are dull & appear rough to the touch, everything I found on the size stated 1/2". The fruits I took a photo of are larger than 1/2" or at least the one is. There were other fruits on the bush that were the same size as the large one in my photo. The ones in my photo were glossy & smooth feeling.

So I am calling this as crabapple. If anyone has a difference of opinion, I certainly would like to hear it. I'm putting this in the db as crabapple. If it is determined it is anything other than a crabapple, the photos can be moved to the proper plant.
