we have a rather rampant tree in our backyard that is referred to as a pepper tree, amongst other things. in early summer, it drops these large blue pods, the size and shape of large grapes, that eventually split open to reveal these seeds.

    cool shot love the texture gary , is it a Plum tree? we used to grow fruit and one of the trees had tiny plums on it :)) I love the contrasts in this image !!!

  • thanks jane, it’s definitely not a plum tree. it’s always referred to as a pepper tree and if you touch any part of it and then lick your fingers you understand why. to be honest, i really wish we didn’t have it but it was one of the few established trees in the yard when we bought the property. i found these 2 seeds on some decking we have and just thought they’d make for a good image.
    thanks for the compliment and fave:-)
