Same family as sapotta, I guess. But whether the pic you have shown is the same,only an expert can tell, so dont go around eating it !!!:) Here is a link - http://www.hindu.com/seta/2004/02/26/stories/2004022600381500.htm

Could be Ebby, not sure yet. I compared with images of the Egg Fruit: http://agriculture.kosmix.com/topic/Egg_fruit http://www.seestjohn.com/flora_egg_fruit.html and No.351 on http://www.flickr.com/groups/kearala_clicks/discuss/72157605774735583/page6/ The leaves of my tree look more rounded than those in the links. No chance of eating this fruit, I could not even reach them on the tree in the zoo.
