Mystery Seed of the Week 172

For this week’s mystery seeds, you might spot pods like these on the ground.


If you opened the pods…


… you’d find honey-colored seeds. Do you have a guess what plant they might come from?

If you’d like to, please leave a comment with your idea. Often your suggestions give me ideas for future seed of the week posts, as well.


Edit:  The answer is now posted.
