Hello Nicholas and welcome to permies! Sorry, I take back my original assessment after looking at the leaves more closely. I sure someone will post an answer shortly. Sorry.

Also the Fruit? pods are relatively small about the size of a large thumb. They just appeared in the past couple of weeks. There are also thorns protecting this tree. It sheds its leaves in the winter.

Yes, what Bengi said, at some point you will be able to eat them.

When we had a jujube tree the deer ate the fruit and we never got any until it got too tall and they couldn't reach a few. They are delicious!

Could it be some kind of quince? Have you looked at Identification Keys for different quinces?
