Identify this fruit

can someone help me identify this fruit?
i got it at chinatown, philadelphia.
fairly expensive. 6 bucks/pound

The seeds are very hard. Usually I'd eat the seeds if they're small and crackable with my teeth, but these were too hard.

They taste sort of like a mushy, uncrisp pear .. if that makes sense.

  1. Looks like an unripe guava to me.

    1. I agree with boogiebaby: unripe guava.

      1. yes. You can usually tell a guava by the aroma.

          1. It's a guava. You got snookered on the price.
