What Type of Fruit Tree is This...and are the Fruit's Edible?
I'm in the southeastern United States, and discovered a tree growing close to the Savannah river. The tree is fairly tall, over 16 feet, and has fleshy raspberry like fruits ranging from orange to pinky-red in color. The pinky red fruits, which look ripe, are the color, shape, and texture of Raspberries. These fruits are a bit larger then a raspberry (about 2 times the size), and when squeezed, ooze a sap looking stuff and a milky white substance seems to be coming from the fruit or the stem. The fruit isn't shiny like red and black berries on Mulberry, Dooberry, plants...etc...it's frosted and fuzzy just like a raspberry, and soft ;).
The tree's leaves are tear-drop in shape.
Can someone please tell me what this is, and if it's fruits are edible? They sure look edible!
