What kind of "fruit" is this?

I noticed this fruit in some bushes planted outside of an apartment complex. The fruit is up to 2" and look like apple without stems. Narrow leaves with thorny branches. I took it to be pome fruit but, not when the fruit is cut open.


the plant looks like flowering quince.


Agreed. This same shrub would have had showy flowers late last winter or early spring.
Apartment residents can probably confirm.
