Until someone more knowledgeable comes along, I'm going to say it is some type of strawberry tree.

fruit looks to have a seed, so not muntingia. Looks like a prunus by the branch and form of fruit.

It looks like a relative of the plum, peach etc., I'd say some kind of Prunus species :)

Strange thing. Has leaves like a panama berry and fruit like an acerola cherry. I thought it might have been a kokam, but it isn't. Hope somebody can ID it.

After a perusal of obscure prunus, I think it might be a variety of cherry plum (prunus cersifera). See image below. Lucky you if it is--very rare, and apparently delicious.

Thanks for the Prunus lead folks :) Showed the owner of the tree the nanking cherry pics and she is pretty certain that's it...but without the prunus lead it would have been a long task..!

Trying to get Fruit Seeds from Western Australia!

Regarding the above comment about Perth, I tried to get some Coffee Fruits sent from Western Australia to Melbourne. However the supplier told me that it was not permitted to send fruits from WA.

Is this correct? I thought the problem was in sending plant materials into WA, not out of it.

I think it cuts both ways Linton. You can pretty easily get seeds through on the sly but seedlings etc are a different deal. You'll inevitably run into walls if you do things by the book because despite its noble intentions, the book is flawed. I estimate by mid winter I'll have a bunch of those prunus cuttings for you.

That's great about the prunus. How do you manage to remember everything?
