It may be so Reed. I would take into account where it came from, who planted it.

99% of plants in gardens come from a local garden centre. The most widely available are europaeus and alatus. But if this was planted by someone that likes to look for something a bit more unusual it could be anything.

if you like the tree keep it. The droping fruit is just a short term problem. the birds will eat the fruit and if they don't the wasps will. in a week or two it will just be a tree again.
