Please identify this fruit

My first thought was black sapote, but upon close it didnít look like one.
It seems like someone had picked the fruits when they were ready -- saw the empty stems but nothing on the ground. Must be an edible fruit tree and the fruit to stem attachment point looks like magosteen and black sapote.

I think you're right. The more I look at the darken branches and the leaves, the more I think it's BS. I used to have a young tree with full of green fruits, not ripen yet and the cold winter down to 32F that killed it instantly on one night. I remember the fruits were different shape than in pic, but it was a long time ago so I must be wrong. Have never tasted a BSapote yet. One day I will get a fruit from this tree.
