Looks like that weird version of lucuma Jantina got from somewhere. Its not the normal cold hardy one with round fruit, could be green sapote?

Trikus as you know P.campechiana is really a composite species and foliage take on many forms including the narrow types such as that.The single seeded spindle canistels (see pic I posted in canistel or lucuma thread) have wider leaves than that however.Lucuma is probably several species each with a few forms.I have a portuguese seedling (lowland broadleafed lucuma) that looks pretty different.La lucuma and tataruba also have many forms but I don't know about narrow leafed ones with elongated fruit.The fruit will have yellow dryish flesh like a canistel I reckon.If you show us the fruit when ripe and how the seeds look I am sure all will be revealed.

This tree was in a large garden north of Mackay .. fruit does ripen yellow . Will chase some seeds as I would grow this tree just for its foliage , fruit is a bonus . I did go right thru the Lucamo thread before posting this , and as its so large thought it better to start a fresh thread .

I would not rule out all canistels just yet.

Some of the local pseudo lucumas have the famous seed arrangement but are just canistels.

There are a few species referred to a lucuma and I hope to secure some seeds of P.macrophylla and P.macrocarpa soon.I have been told they have fruit of excellent quality.
