What a coincidence my friend. I photographed this when I posted "porcupine" plant like 2 days ago. I think it is a Pittosporum tobira.

you know I have been wrong many times before!

More likely to be Pittosporum undulatum.

I think the key difference like you stated is the narrow base of fruit. P. tobira' fruits are more rounded. I am not sure.
