    “Leaves are rough, almost sticky” It seems like these are characteristics of the sandpaper tree/sugarberry Anacua tree (Ehretia anacua). Check it out and see if you have a match. According to sources sandpaper tree is a treasure, its fruits are edible. Click on images from the link below to enlarge. The second link is for more information. If this isn’t E. anacua, make new post when it blooms with picture of flowers. Best wishes! http://www.wildflower.org/gallery/species.php?id_plant=EHAN
