I just bought a house that has three fruit trees on it. I cant tell what they are since they do not have fruit on them yet. Can anyone tell what they are by these pictures?

The bark on the last 2 look like cherry/plum... Some sort of stone fruit at least....

3 is a pear

Tree 2 looks like a Stone fruit (Peach, plum, cherry, etc)
Tree 3 looks like a Pomme fruit (Apple, pear)

Now... Both could well be a stone fruit or a pomme fruit, though... Hard to tell without good pix of the leaves and flowers...

Pretty much impossible to tell until you get some leaves and flowers.... but the fruit will certainly tell the truth...

2 = persimmon definitely
1 = cherry or not a fruit tree, no other temperate fruit tree has that shiny bark on larger trunks.
3 = pear or apple, hard to say which given the fuzzy picture.

1 is a Cherry, my Montmorency has the exact bark, just as shiny six years later.

Tree 1 is definitely cherry. Tree 3 is yes, apple or pear, probably pear. It appears to me that GreenOrchardMom summarized it best.

Persimmons are beautiful trees, especially in the fall. The leaves turn gorgeous colors, and the blazing orange fruit hangs on the leafless trees, looking stark and dramatic.
