Because the fruit is brightly colored and it doesn't appear to have been eaten by birds or insects I'm guessing it's either toxic or just completely inedible.
That is just a guess though.

It's the first time I've ever seen this fruit in the bush. And I could only see a single tree with that fruit.
That might mean it's reasonably rare, but could also just mean I've never seen one at the right time of year.

Could be Scentless Rosewood. Synoum glandulosum , if so, doesn't appear to be edible but important to wildlife.
