It may be helpful if you are able to give the exact location of this tree. I have a feeling that this may not be Crataegus monogyna, as leaf lobes are more or less obtuse at tip. I have photographed another species from a Garden in Srinagar.


This was photographed in one of the plant nurseries near Cheshmeshahi Gardens.
I have some more pictures of the same.
Please let me know if you would like me to post those for making it easier to id.


Leaf shape and fruit size and colour suggest C. laevigata.

Tree with red berries seen in Fremont on 28th, Sept,14

A medium tree, cultivated.
Hawthorn, Crataegus species?
Seen in the parking lot of a big store. 


do you have a pic of the whole plant?

size of the berris?


Here is a picture of the whole tree.
A cultivated, small tree.
Leaves look similar to Crataegus phaenopyrum, common name Washington Hawthorn.

Craetegus oxyacantha – Hawthorn


In C. oxycantha/monogyna leaves are much more deeply divided. This seems to be C. laevigata


I agree that leaves in my pictures are different from C oxycantha.
Did you check for C. phaenopyrum?
They looked similar to me.
