Fruity Question

Anyone know for sure what these are? We have heard white apple or perhaps coco plum.

Looks like a Natal Plum, also called Boxwood. Fruit edible but other parts of the plant poisonous if ingested.

That's for sure. Although, I knew Tacogirl had lived to tell the tale...

I also think they are coco plums. The ones I've had remind me of a "snow apple" in taste and consistency. I didn't know the other parts were poisonous though. Good thing I didn't chew on the limb.
