Mystery Seed of the Week 141

Let’s start the new year off right with a new seed of the week.

Recognize these waxy blue “berries”, which are actually seed cones?

The seeds inside almost look like grape seeds.

Do you know the name of the plant? Be sure to leave a comment if you have an idea.

Edit:  The answer is now posted.

    Ugh, yes – mountain cedar, the bane of my life and one of the main reasons I moved away from Texas. Birds do like to eat them and some people swear that if you eat the berries (and pollen) you’ll develop immunity, but it never worked for me.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Sorry to hear about the allergies.

    One of the Junipers at any rate. I never had a pollen problem with them, but their foliage makes me itch.

    I know they are prickly.
