Anyone know what this is?

It is dropping seeds from its lurid orange pine cone-like fruit things in front of my gym. I took two home.

Is it some kind of yucca?

I don't think so. It's a tree. With roots like a mangrove.

Pandannas

Wow. Thanks, anonymous. I just read up on it. The leaves are aromatic and used in cooking. I am so going to take some leaves next time I go to the gym.

I am not convinced that it is benign pandannus.

I believe it is an alien reproductive pod, and that you must not sleep with it in the house!

Father Tony of the Farmboyz said...

Too late, E! I do hope the alien rips through my chest just as I am placing my order at Starbucks.

Dear ewe, my place could fit in the kitchen of that place! I am at this moment heading into Wilton with a friend who wishes to inspect The Manor as a possible place for him to hold a lunch for a few friends.
