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.

      I just got these Mountain Coconuts to plant, but they seem a bit too green. Would they be able to germinate? I read it is pretty hard to germinate those anyway.  Should I remove the mesocarp (the green husk)?
      I was planning on letting them dry for a few weeks, then a few weeks in the fridge, then soak them for a few days, then plant them halfway burried in topsoil/peat moss mix and leave them outside to experience daily temperature variation.
      Does enyone have experience germinating Parajubaea Torallyi?

      Saw these recently and it kinda looked like a palm. Can anyone identify it?

      Can someone confirm if plant #1 isTipularia discolor (crane-fly orchid)? If not, does anyone know what it is? It was getting dark when I took the photos.  I can try to take more in the daytime if that helps.  The first 3 photos are of the leaves and the last is of the fruit.

      I collected some Sabal palmetto seeds from Virginia Beach off of an older palmetto there in July, I just now removed the dry fruits from some of the seeds, and they look kind of light. Could this just be because they were still in the fruit? They all sank in water. I am just used to the seeds being a bit darker.

      Does anyone know of any good fruiting banana varieties? I am wanting to start some banana seeds in the fall and grow them indoors to a nice size and then plant them outdoors the next Spring with the hopes that they will get big enough to produce some bananas later in the summer.
