Eriobotrya. ID ?

I think the following as per keys herein:

yes …, it’s between Eriobotrya hookeriana or Eriobotrya japonica

Eriobotrya hookeriana

Same tree on 02 March 2024
1 image.

Mature fruiting on 06 April 2024 from the same tree.
5 very high res. images.

Re-considering the sp. based on fruiting phenology, fruit shape and size ( 1 x .5 cm.) and leaf pattern
I guess this should be Eriobotrya dubia (Lindl.) Decne.
