I grew up in upstate New York, where domestic and wild apple trees are everywhere.
The wild varieties tend to be a bit softer than the hybrids but they are extremely sweet and seem to ripen overnight. They don't store well, except when they got 16 inches of snow over them.
Pretty much the same with the pears, but they are usually harder and last longer.
I miss the black raspberries.
A couple of our neighbors have old-fashioned cider presses, so when the time is right we usually have a big party, everybody brings baskets of apples and jugs, and we handle the problem that way.
My wife also makes applesauce and freezes it. The little old-fashioned apples always make much better applesauce than the commercial brands.
