Wild Tiny Apple in Kuwait

It’s amazing how a little wild fruit can be so hard to search in google ( hehehehe….)
I was walking back to the office when I saw a bunch of farriers busy eating and taking fruits on the ground and in the tree just near to my office, out of curiosity I asked them, what was their eating, they hand me a couple of fruits and told me that they don’t know what’s the name of the fruit.

As I arrived at my desk, I washed and put it on my mouth, it tasted like apple not that sweet but it has this apple like taste, for me I like it more with salt.
Anyway, I’ve been seeing this fruit in Kuwait because it’s everywhere but I only came to know that it can be eaten.

So with a little help from my friend google, I found such an incredible discovery of this tiny apple like wild fruit. 

Malus sylvestris, the European crab apple, is a species of the genus Malus, native to Europe. Its scientific name means "forest apple" and the truly wild tree has thorns.
Wild apple has an expanded crown and often appear more like a bush than a tree. It can live 80-100 years and grow up to 10 m tall with trunk diameters of 23-45 cm. Due to its weak competitiveness and high light requirement, wild apple exist mostly at the wet edge of forests, in farmland hedges or on very extreme, marginal sites. The tree is rather rare but native to most European countries. It occurs in a scattered distribution pattern as single individuals or in small group

Hmmmmm Meaning that,  This dry looking tree that bears tiny wild apple like fruit near my office which I don’t usually get notice was already standing, living and bearing fruits for like more than 10 years or so, and it can live up to 80 - 100 years??? OHMYGEE!! Isn’t it amazing!!
