Little pinkish red fruits

I took this photo because the fruit looks like miniature water jambu or water guava we have in Sarawak and Singapore. The shape is the same, but the size is smaller than my little pinky finger.

The tree grew at Wesley Park. I have not seen it anywhere else. The tree is not very big, about ten feet tall. The colour of the fruit is very attractive.

Hi Reader Wil,

I don't know if they are edible. I am actually quite a scary cat when it comes to eating unusual fruits. I think this stamps from the fact my ancestors came to Borneo and were unsure about various plants. Some of them got very sick. So we were always told,"Don't eat." I must write about an episode of my grandma with mushroom. Thanks for reminding me.
