Pomegranate. Commonly cultivated in the Mediterranean. Should grow quite a bit more than the 3 inches diameter you are observing, and become a bit redder when ripe... although I guess depends on the variety.

Rather than a spaceship looks more like royalty if you turn it with the crown facing upwards :).

Looks like pomegranate, or Punica granatum. Pretty common fruit, you can even find it in the supermarket.

  • Is that an immature pomegranate or a different variety? It's a different color and the fruit is much smaller relative to the bud (?) than the pomegranates I'm used to. – divibisan Aug 1 '18 at 17:14
  • @divibisan, there are yellow varieties, but I think you are right that they are still immature (judging from the large crowns). – benn Aug 1 '18 at 17:44
