I need help identify this plant. It looks like it’s grapes growing on a tree. There are some purple “grapes” too.

Looks like plums to me too.  At least the individual hanging round fruits that appear to be an inch or more around surely look like plums.

A very clear picture of the leaves would help us out a lot to for making an ID.  Thanks.

Here’s some additional pics. The green pod is hard to the touch but I smashed it and this was the inside.

All I can say is that it's not a grape.  Looks like there's a dried up purple fruit hanging in the back of your second picture in your original post.  Does that dried up fruit have a big pit in it like a flat peach pit?  If so, that seems plummy to me...
 
I suggest huckleberry pie. But the only thing on the gluten free menu is this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
