Hi good shot, here in Italy there is the Arbutus unedo (called corbezzolo in italian) that we eat, it is present as a wild plant but it is also cultivated in small quantities, the plant i the pictures is that or a related species.

In the UK Arbutus Unedo is also known as the strawberry tree, and is grown as an ornamental plant. Not eaten here!

I have six of them in my yard and quite a few are in my neighborhood. I use them for a short to medium height screening tree.

I was just recently informed that this is called; "Lychee" in Australia and New Zealand. Also, that with ice cream, it is very delicious. I was indeed surprised to learn that it is

native to the United States. Typically, they grow 10 feet tall, however this species reaches a maximum height of 8 feet.

Many thanks for your comment.
