You'll have to get closer show flowers, leaf, bark and some size reference. Describe the smell of the leaves when crushed.
Those kinds of factors really help. This is the vegetable forum and other fruit growers who might enjoy a mystery usually watch the Tropical Fruit discussion forum more than here.

Thanks.
I just took the photo while i was driving by. No close ups :(

Wasn't sure if this is "Tropical" or not. so just posted under everything else. too late to change now i guess.

Cool flowers, reminds me of Annona!
The rest of the growth reminds me of ceanothus or pomegranate.

Looks like Guajilote (Parmentiera edulis)

I grew one in Sarasota, the tree did well enough, just couldn't figure out what to do with the fruit.

Looks like a (broom?) branch trying to pretend to be a tree in a manipulated photo.
