From the pics you posted it certainly seems to be an edible type. Can't say for sure which one, though. Unfortunately, with it flowering and setting fruit so late I doubt that the fruit will have time to mature before cool weather sets in. It typically takes around 4 months from the time the first fruit appears for them to ripen. I'd let them go and see what you get though. It can't hurt but 4 months from today puts you at Feb. 1st.

Good luck with your fruit, I am not knowledgeable enough to identify it for you. If you can post another pic or two of the pstem and leaves, it may help.
