Need help identifying this fruit
Hi, I was wondering if anyone recognizes this fruit. The tree has been growing in our back yard for somewhere around 50 years. It blooms continuously throughout the year and is a lovely home for honeybees.
I'm interested in identifying the plant because I want to know if its safe to eat. The fruits are hard like a nut, shaped like a kumquat, and have arils like pomegranates.
The tree is 14-16 feet tall and about 12 feet in diameter with a very defined canopy. The trunk isn't very wide (roughly 8-10 inches in diameter).
