They look like sucker shoots. These are below the graft point and will be a completely different tree and fruit from your original. Usually they are a hardy and fast growing root stock with poor fruiting qualities. I would be sure to remove those as they pop up. You will want to correct any stresses to the tree as well. This will usually be the cause to suckers showing up.
