Is it a citrus? If not, it looks an awful lot like some guavas I ate as a kid in California. How interesting! What did it taste like?

It does look like a mini guava. It looks softer than the larger ones.

Looks like loquat / loquato fruit, maybe. i guess they don’t keep very well, so they’re not very common outside of the areas they’re grown.

Good guesses! Catherine and Ruby – you guys were right –they were guavas! Much softer than the green ones you usually see around Chinatown.
