Hi Thanks Antonio, however I don't think it is a Schinus molle,Peruvian Pepper tree - I have googled that and leaves, seed so not match. I'll keep looking!

Hi Michelle,welcome to Project Noah,i think you are rigth,this is not a Ylang Ylang seed pod,from my research this is Schinus molle,Peruvian Pepper tree :-)

Hi, can anyone confirm that this is definitely a Ylang Ylang seed pod? All other YY seed pod photos look very different.
Please confirm
