What kind of (fruit??) tree is this?

csbattleJune 17, 2013

Hi all - I've been trying to figure out what kind of tree I have on my hands here, to no avail. The leaves are a little fuzzy, and it smells really good, like a sweet fruit, when leaves or twigs are snapped off. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Also, I live in San Diego, if that helps. I believe it's zone 10a.

Here's a pic of what looks like a little fruit starting out.

Yep--or at least a close relative. Get out your little paint brush and watch the video linked below!
