    While they could be a mini guava - I'm not very familia with it, they could also be a variety of small/wild feijoa - Feijoa are usually quite sweet inside and very common in New Zealand, and the - As @Bamboo suggested, it would be a good idea to post a photo of the plant, and also your locality. (Fejoas are also known as pineapple guavas) – davidgo Nov 10 '16 at 23:11

By consensus of the thread, the answer is Feijoa, also known as pineapple guavas!

  • You can eat the flower petals too, they are pretty tasty. – gorav Nov 26 '16 at 20:41
