SO what's this OTHER thing growing on my backyard tree. And more important, will I soon be able to eat it?

Thus far in my backyard I've found plants that grow tangerines, passion fruit, persimmons and the biggest fig tree I have ever seen. I was about to write off the tree outside my bedroom as a slacker there for aesthetic value alone when I saw something starting to grow there:
I figure it's probably a flower of some kind and ignore it. Then a month passes and now they all look like this:
They're about the size of a kiwi and they feel on the outside kind of like a lemon. Only I've seen lemon and lime trees and I'm pretty sure that isn't what this is.
So here's the question: What IS growing on this tree, when is it going to be done and when it's finished, will it be edible?
