This appears to be some sort of plum. To confirm if the tree is in the genus, Prunus, make sure to cut it open to see that it only has one stone seed.

If it does have one stone seed, and it tastes palatable, then it can be safe to consume, as long as the tree has not been sprayed with anything questionable.
