No, a roseapple looks totaly different. The rosewood is often used for its timber, but it is also a fruit tree, I was told. But I could not find any infos about it

I knew it as NSW Scented Rosewood. In my time as a hobbiest woodturner, it was a muchly sort after timber. It's a native rainforest tree naturally occuring from around here, North of Sydney, up to the Qld border. I used to collect the timber for turning from out in the Watagan mountains. The timber getters from a hundred years ago would leave large stumps of it behind. It's a very durable timber. I still have large pieces of it laying around the place out in the weather unscathed. Even after being cut down 100 years ago, the scent of the timber is still as strong as a rose, if not more concentrated.

There is no edable fruit on a Rose mahogany, Same family as Red cedar. There fruit are just full of seeds.
Timber is durable (Note, Not "Very Durable") @ about 720 kg/M3 ADD.
Not near the iron barks @ over 1000 kg/M3 ADD so id get the timber you have "Laying around" and flog it or store it corectly or it will go to the dogs. : )
The op must be talking about something else.
