Sorry about your muntingia. Looks a bit like Goji Berry

It kind of looks like a Shinus, but the swelling at the base of the petiole looks more Juglans.

It should be more obvious as it grows.

It doesnt look like some kind of Juglans.. At least to me it looks really similar to Pistacia lentiscus that we have here. So i am going with some kind of Shinus. Have you tried to cut and smell a leaf. If it is some variety of Shinus it should have a nice resinous aroma

I imagine that many plants that look quite similar will also have a resinous leaf smell like prickly ash or many plants by similar names.

Looks like curry leaf plant. Crush a leaf and smell.
