    What an extraordinary close up, the seed pods look like alien invaders!

  4. Have you ever eaten the pods? I’m waiting for mine to turn red.

    What a curiosity! I’ve never seen one of these pods.

    Thanks, Susie. The kousa seeds are unique. There are a number of “unusual” (read: I haven’t seen it before) seed forms out there…perhaps we should start “Seed Sunday,” and ask others to show us their finds.
