Mystery tree

Vaccinium aboreun

Description:

My Master Gardner friend has this on her Florida Ranch just outside Myakka Park. Medium size tree with eliptic , shiny leaves placed alternately on the stems, with clusters of white cupped flowers that drive the bees crazy!

Habitat:

She has been unable to identify it. The Beekeeper's bees from next door gather the flowers honey and she exchanges fruit for the honey so she can put her own honey on the table.

Notes:

I thought we had found the right name, but it still eludes us.

I can't see the flowers too well but they look like something in the Blueberry Family, Ericaceae. Is this a native tree or something she planted?
