ID please.

There's this plant growing at our house.  None of the local support group seem to be able to ID this plant.  Can anyone help with identifying this plant?  Thank you.

It is some kind of (non-Annona) Annonaceae, perhaps a Porcelia or Polyalthia species. Pictures of the flowers would help.

Thank you for the suggestion, mangomike.  It looks like a Polyalthia specie, but cannot pinpoint which one specifically.  Also, funny thing is I don't remember seeing the flowers.  I'll try to see and capture some pictures of flowers.

It is Polyalthia suberosa
The fruits are edible
