Identify this tree starts with ...
I live on Macleay Island off the coast of Brisbane and have this tree in my yard. No one so far has been able to tell me what it is, can anyone recognise it please? I have picked one when it changed colour to brown and cut it open but didnt taste very nice at all!

Looks a lot like a black sapote - try it when soft but still green.

I'm guessing here but it looks like what we call 'Jambu' back home in Malaysia. I'm not sure what it is called in english (maybe Guava?) but we usually eat it when firm and green. it's nice to be eaten when still firm - it'll be crispy and juicy.

I'm 99.9% sure it's a black sapote. I have one of these as well... quite a pretty tree but the branches can be a bit messy.

David's right. Native gardenia. Bush tucker. Hard to get a decent tasting one, although I hear they exist. I have four young Randias in my garden and I'm hoping at least one will be palatable.
