Malus angustifolia is a species of crabapple native to the Southeastern United States.. The fruits are small and have an aromatic scent and a pear-like shape. They are astringent and acidic and not palatable when raw, but can be used to make jellies, jams and food preserves. The tree is grown as an ornamental plant.
This one was spotted at the edge of a deciduous forest at the Stevens Creek Heritage Preserve near Clarks Hill (McCormick County), SC.
