Your starter for ten

Does anyone know what this is?

I have a tree, about 20-feet tall, that's producing these things. The fruit, seed, whatever, is about the size of an apple but rock hard, I need a saw to cut the thing open. It has a fury skin which is very brown. The inside, once I've sworn enough and cut the thing in half, is apple-white with no obvious seed inside.

I've taken one into work, along with the stalk and leaves, and asked around but no one knows what it is, including the locals. Any clues would be appreciated.

A closer look:
