Hi, this is a plant which I found where I worked, In Tehran, Iran though I'm not sure it's native to this area. Its fruit taste extremely sour (unfortunately I had not taken any picture of its inside). The following pictures are of the plant itself, its fruit and seeds.
I would appreciate your response

I agree

Raw fruit is not edible - it must be cooked.

To which my DH can attest. I had some cut up for potpourri and he tried to eat a slice. He said it was bad. Hilarious!
