    Not sure, thinking apple or quince - but leaning more towards quince, something to do with the leaf texture

    I agree slightly but the leaf size is huge, at least 6" from stem to tip, rather large for an apple variant.

    Has it flowered this year?
    I "think" triploid apples have larger than normal leaves.

    Pretty sure VC is right and its an apple - doesn't look like any type I know eater, cooker or crab - will be possible to give a better answer hopefully, if the fruit develops and you can post a photo of those - might simply be a seedling.
