Ziziphus xylopyrus (Retz.) Willd., wild tree from Manmad area of Nashik dt, Maharashtra
Yes, the fruits are inedible..
..., but I have eaten a some of the wild ber vars. from ruins in my childhood. And some of them look like one in this photo.  
The fruits are very hard , that is the meaning of Xylopyrus (wood like fruit), it is difficult to eat. Some other wild species are there. Fruits of them are edible.


Another Ziziphus Species seen growing wild.
Ziziphus nummularia!
Any chance Ziziphus xylopyrus ??
Both the Ziziphus plants were growing nearby.
This and the other I have posted which you have also identified as Ziziphus xylopyrus.
