Mystery Seed of the Week 125

I can’t believe we are up to mystery seed #125 already. Some weeks it is hard to come up with something new, but then I look again at a common plant that I’ve taken for granted and there’s our mystery seed 🙂

If you live in a warm climate, you may have seen these green fruit hanging on a shrub or small tree.

Over time they start to darken.

This is what they look like when they’ve fallen off the plant.

Any ideas what plant these belong to?

Edit:  the answer is now posted.

    They look like figs. My dad had a couple of fig trees in his yard. The taste of a fresh warm fig fresh off the vine? Nothing better!

    Hum, better not eat these…

  3. Karen

    Not figs, then …

    They do look like figs in these photographs, but if you felt them, they are dry and hard.
