Just moved into a new house in Puerto Rico and I found this tree in the back garden. Can anyone tell me what tree this is, and whether its fruit is edible?

I think this is a Canistel (Pouteria campechiana):

The fruit are yellow when when ripe, but the form and also the leaves look very similar. The fruit are edible raw, you can find some more information here.

  • $\begingroup$ +1, but OP also asks if its fruit is edible? $\endgroup$
