Here are pic's of the trees and seeds I collected.  I am thinking either phoenix dactylifera or phoenix canariensis.  The seeds do not look like pictures of either of the pic's of these seeds on the web.  Anyone know what I have here?  Maybe the seeds I am seeing on the web have already dried out?  These were collected from the dates which looked like gigantic red grapes. 

Thanks,

^ Agree, look like Olive (European) Pits / seeds to me.  Texas Olive  is a frequent landscape subject locally also but the seeds look different than these..

Well, maybe they were olives.  It's makes sense now that I think about the consistency of the "dates" I found.  I don't recall an olive tree where I retrieved the seeds but maybe there was one I didn't see.

 

Thanks

Burl,

     I am playing CSI here.......   What is that tree in the picture where the branches/leaves are just showing in the right upper corner.   Looks like Olive to me.....    Maybe I am seeing things(olive trees).
