Very spiky tree with very spiky fruits. About 6 metres tall.
It's no trouble at all. I'd like to add the nuts & flowers to this spot anyhow....plus there's a great fish & chip shop just up the road! It's a good excuse to go back :)
Well only if you're passing that way Leanne. Don't make a special trip on my account. Be interesting to get a positive ident. there could be trees growing here and I just have'nt spotted them ...yet
Oh wow! I just checked your spot & they look like the nuts found on all the gray nickernut sites I could find. They're such an interesting plant. I'm only too happy to do that Viv. It's only a half hour drive to this spot, so I'll keep a close eye on them & post when they ripen :)
Hi Leanne! Not sure if my ident is correct but this is my spotting - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/986.... Perhaps you could check on the fruits for me when they are ripe, see if they look like these. I'm still looking for the trees here ...
Wow... Thanks Nancy for ID... I already thinking with Fabaceae due to opposite leafs...But never imagined such kind of Fruit/Pod is find in this family...This Genus might be originated from West Indies.
Wonderful! Thank you for the ID auntnance & thanks Ashish. I'll keep an eye on this tree & try & get the flowers next season.
Its very tough to find without flower. Spiked fruit and Opposit leafs...
