Fruit Question

I've thought that this was a cherry tree for the last 3 years.  Am I wrong?
It grows like a cherry tree, has leaves like a cherry tree and bark like a cherry tree, but these are some BIG cherries!
This is the first year that it has had any fruit.

My finger for size comparison.

Next tree.  This is a plum tree.  It has had plums before, so I KNOW that is is a plum tree.

One of the 3 currant trees that I planted last year.  They are growing HUGE!

Finally apples on the apple trees.  Well, on one of the trees.  The other 2 still don't have any fruit on them. 
And that beautiful apricot tree with all the blooms?  Zero fruit.  Last year I had a few apricots even with all the fruit drop after the late freeze.  BUT I remembered to prune last year.  Next year.....
