I planted a bunch of tree and shrub seed in a bed about 5 years ago and lost the labels on the plants, uggh.

My guess is buffaloberry- any ideas?

I’d still like to add them to my food forest.

Luckily I saved the list of plants.

​​chinese pear
​​hardy kiwi
​​highbush blueberry ​​
wild blackberry
​​amur grape
​​nanking cherry
​​sargent’s crab apple ​​
serviceberry ​​
silver buffaloberry ​
​American hazelnut
​​lilac
​​cape apples and beachplum

Hard to tell at that size, but I think you are right.

doesn't look much like buffaloberry to me. my vote goes to a crabapple or serviceberry.
