Grown in central Florida, large tree slam full of this berry/fruit. They turn black and fall to the ground, mushy green meat.

Is this thread meant to be marked "identified"? If so, what is it?

What's in the middle of the 'fruit' (besides mushy green)?

A seed/pit. I know it's hard to tell, but that's mainly seed in the second pic.


I was thinking olive too!

That's why I asked. It looks like an olive tree.

So do you just pick them when they are green then?

Olives are not a pick and eat fruit. The have to be cured in brine or lye for several weeks first to leach out the bitter taste.

I agree, looks like a variety of Olive Tree (Olea europaea) and should do well in the area but might need to be protected if temp's don't drop below about 20ºF for any length of time: http://gardeningsolutions.ifas...
