Saw two or three of these on our stroll through the Arboretum last week. This one had been set on a bench in the Rose Garden. The others were also obviously not in their original locations, so I have no ide what it might grow on. Any ideas? Even ideas as to how to search for it in a search engine? Weird fruit just doesn't seem like it would turn up anything accurate in the image search.
For Odd Shots on Monday--
Using image search, I did find an answer here, but I don't know how she found it. With her identification you can read more about it on Wikipedia, or research the name further.
