@dadpad,
It looks like a pineapple guava, aka feijoa.

The Feijoa (Feijoa sellowiana), also known as Pineapple Guava or Guavasteen (and sometimes mistakenly as Freijoa or Frijoa), is an evergreen shrub or small tree, 1"7 metres (3.3"23 ft) in height, originating from the highlands of southern Brazil and parts of Colombia, Uruguay and northern Argentina. The genus is monotypic.

It is widely cultivated as a garden plant and fruiting tree and is a perennial.

@littlek,
yes i like it.
Slightly tart lemon pineapple flavour but not so much acid as lemon or pineapple. A little kiwifruit(ish).
Flesh is just very slightly gritty. Like maybe a fine sugar was involved but not properly dissolved.
Preparation: cut the fruit lenghtwise and cubed on the skin like a mango then turn inside out.

@dadpad,
I like feijoa trees - we used to plant them in the Los Angeles area. I seem to remember that you can eat the flowers - people put them into jello salads. (Don't trust me on that).
