Yes they are Jellis, if you look at the distal end, you see the characteristic apple bottom, while elderberries are primarily spherical.
pretty small fruit compared to the leaf size.
Thank you for the lesson. I did notice the lack of leaves but I assumed it was due climate changes.
You would have been disappointed, this is a crabapple(Malus spp), elderberry bushes have compound leaves, these are simple.
Had I known, I would have picked some for immune syrup or brandy! Well, now I have a good reason to revisit this area. Thanks, !
