Oh… I’m so accustomed to it in California that I didn’t even notice. Apparently it’s an African plant naturalize to the West Coast by Spanish sailors. The fruit is edible and delicious.

Cool! Had no idea it was edible!

It’s actually really good. I don’t understand why it’s not sold in stores. It’s been a few years, but I think the skin is edible, or maybe you eat it kind of like a kiwi. It sort of has a kiwi texture and flavor, but better. The red skin will stain your fingers. The inside is translucent. There are little seeds in it but they are like kiwi seeds; you just ignore them.
