Maybe Inga uruguensis? Glad to hear there's a fruiting Inga in California.

maybe laurina?

Thanks for reply's so far but I don't think it is inga laurina this site shows more blond skin on pod;

INGÁ BANANA (Inga laurina) - PROJETO COLECIONANDO ...https://www.colecionandofrutas.com.br › ...· Translate this page
Thanks Nate, I'll check into I. vera ssp. affinis
Please keep suggestions coming!!

Laurina is just my guess it's a little hard to tell from here. Are the pods old or fresh? if theyre old and thats why it's yellow brown its probably just feuillei. I would be interested in seeds if it was a laurina but now that I look again just looks like old feuillei pods

driftw, I think the pods are old but that is the color they turn after green. Also from pictures on line pods look to small to be I. feuillei or can they throw smaller pods in sub-tropical environment?

Yeah they can absolutely throw smaller pods. anywhere from a few inches to about 24 inches long

I think it's accurate, It's probably the most common species in CA and one of the best for eating
