Unknown fruit, ID needed
« on: December 06, 2015, 02:29:12 AM »
No idea what this is. Fruit, which may or may not be non-ripe, is very hard. Neither looks nor smells like something I'd like to put in my mouth. Any guesses? I'm looking at you Mike T.
Came across t growing out of a creek bank while searching for my dog who, in keeping with his general trend of bastardry escaped yet again today.

Looks like an Atractocarpus and maybe a feral A.fitzalani but inside is nor quite right.A flower would reveal all.

Looked it up, I reckon you've nailed it. Probably just very under ripe.

Growing in total isolation as far as I cold see. How it got to where it was, and how it is bearing in Brisbane is beyond me. Amazing. Are they any good?

Thanks Mike.
