I really dont know what are thse two fruits, i found them in Brazil, but i think they are not endemic from the country itself. The greenish fruit is not ripe yet, i was able to found that the ripe ones that were on the streets are kinda creamy like a sapota and have a brown colour.
 The yellow one has a citric smell and a mesocarp like a canistel. Are they edible?
i am using an external host to show the fruits.

The yellow one looks much like my lemon drop mangosteen in both the rind color and fruit to seed ratio but appear a bit larger.
