The first picture makes me think of Elaeagnus. The second...?

I cut open the fruit/seeds last year and it did not appear edible. Interestingly, the drop of this "fruit" was pretty much uniform, not like, say, lemons on a tree.
Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it!

I agree with Porkpal, it does look like Eleagnus pungens, but the fruits of that are usually reddish in colour.

Its a Pineapple Guava. The fruit is really good and the flowers are edible too.

Cut the fruit in half and eat the middle out - don't try to peel them. Let them fall on their own; they are the best.

Thanks Daisey! That was my guess too. (I just planted one a couple months ago)

And the blooms of Pineapple Guava (Acca sellowiana) are pretty too!

LOL! That's why I bought mine. I don't even know if it is the self fruiting type. I haven't seen one in 50 some years.
