Although the third photo doesn't show the typical habit of a Sugarberry, it is pretty cool looking so I decided to include grand old tree.
The fruit of Celtis laevigata are "drupes" about 5 to 8 mm in diameter. They have a thick skin and range in color from orange to reddish-brown and are attached by 6 to 15 mm long pedicels. Fruits may persist through the winter.
The buds are alternate giving the branches a zig-zag appearance.
