Does it have thorns on the branches? Of so it might be a pyrocantha or firethorn which is also know as a queen of heaven tree. I used to have one right next to my garage and decided to get rid of it. That bloody bush won the first three rounds and I ran out of band aids before I decided to rent a small chain saw.

Scratch that, I just got a better look at your pictures.

I do think it is a strawberry tree. Even the flowers are the same.en.wikipedia.org...

It is far away from its native home. Neat tree.

I'd never advise a person to eat a berry unless they were absolutely positive about its identity. The wiki article says that the fruit is edible but that its taxonomy name is telling "unedo", which translates from "I eat just one". Apparently they aren't tasty.

But, again, since the identity is questioned, I wouldn't eat one.

Interesting.. so the outcome is thats its a strawberry tree?

If so.. we all know what strawberries look like.. at least the ones we buy in the stores. But if so, how come this common berry was not recognized?

Because strawberry tree is a common name not a taxonomically accurate one, I would guess.

Strawberries don't come from trees.

They're annual ground covers.

Strawberry tree is just a common name because I guess the ripe fruit looks like a strawberry.

I would have to go with strawberry tree, or at least a very close relative. I lived in southern Portugal where it is very common (Its called medronho over there) and it looks just like it, although they normally should have very tiny seeds in the middle.
They are very sweet when ripe, and boy do they make a powerful liqueur out of it
