Fruit/Seed ID

Does anyone know what these are? They were found washed up on the beach. There are 2 fruits and one with the fruit removed, revealing the seed. The fruit was sticky and almost web-like.

I have no clue.  The fruits and seeds I researched online look slightly different, but I'm not familiar.  I'm not sure where the fruits originated from, but these were found in Virginia Beach, VA. I don't know if they are mature/viable, but I'm going to attempt to germinate them.

The inside of the fruit reminds me of when you cut into aloe, if that helps.

Agree, doesn't look like Tropical Almond to me as well. Fruits on those are typically move oval/ lense shaped, and have a hard, Almond-Like shell around the kernel when you remove the outter skin.  Interesting.. stumped myself.  There's a page over on Palomar Colleges' website that discusses / has pictures of various sea drifting fruits / seeds but didn't see anything that resembled those fruits.

I'm certainly not having much luck figuring it out.  Hopefully they germinate and can provide a clue.  If not, they might just remain unknown.

      Got a couple thousand Bismarck seeds from a mature female right next to a male. Some of the seeds were still a tad green, but all were ripe, and the embryos filled the nut shell, though they all had a small hole in the center of the embryo I don't see in other palm seeds,. Does anyone know if this is normal?
       I soaked a couple hundred fruit and all, and set the rest aside in #7 pots for a few weeks till the fruit loosened up. Now I am cleaning the fruit and soaking , and getting 100% floaters. Opened a couple and the embryos are receding from the shell and the space  (between embryo & shell) has a bit of white fuzzy look. Anyone know what I am dealing with here?
       Should I just clean them all, soak and attempt to germinate anyway? Hate to waste 100% of my time when I could dedicate the space and labor to easier trees to grow, but even if I can get 20% ish , I don't mind the work.

      I'm trying to figure out what I have here, 2 young palms but maybe enough features now to narrow it down.  Any ideas?
       
      Seedling #1 - Very lush green, aggressive root system, fast grower, looking like a Phoenix (maybe Canary or long shot rupicola) or I could be way off.
       

       
      Seedling #2 - Green with blue hue, moderate grower that seems to be getting a little faster, originally thought blue minor but it's been growing an above grown trunk.

      Tooty fruity fallin' in my garden.  Dypsis onilahensis hybrid and last photo of a Dypsis heteromorpha.  I have no idea if any of these are viable seeds.  What is fruiting in your garden right now?

      Hi, hope everybody had a great weekend. Can anyone help me ID this palm, if I'm not mistaken it's a date palm but I don't know which one specifically. As you can see it sprouted a lot of seedlings of which I have luckily potted a few.
