When they dry and open, the seeds inside are bigger than a dime.

    These are cool! For a woody legume that’s native to N. America, check out Gymnocladus dioicus. The seeds are even larger, and are nearly spherical.

    We’ll definitely be on the look out for that one. Apparently it grows here in Arizona.
