The leaves look like my citrus trees but the fruit doesn't look right and I don't think citrus get that tall. I'm stumped.

It is not citrus or mango.  Seedling citrus can get that tall but they are rarely seen anymore.  I remember a few old seedling groves (citrus) and they were about the size and form of a field grown water oak.  The lateral veins in a mango leaf are a lot more prominent and the leaves are not as v shaped. 

This leaf is thick, waxy, and smooth and the midrib is relatively sharp and raised, more so than that of a loblolly bay.  I was surprised to find any growing as far north as my location in central Florida.

It is not a guava.  This particular fruit is larger than the guavas I have seen.  These leaves are 4"-6" long.

Hints:
This tree is invasive to Australia but native to Florida, South America and the Caribbean.  The seeds are poisonous and the powder from the seeds can cause blindness in humans.  The fruit is eaten by many animals including alligators (which gives another hint to one of its common names) and it smells good when ripe.  The leaves and seeds can also kill or deter insects.

Danny gets another one. It is one of the trees added to to state FFA forestry contest. I was pleased to be shown a couple growing in Lakeland which is a quite a bit north of their range. Most are found south of Lake Okeechobee.
