Peanut Tree: Sterculia quadrifida [Family: Sterculiaceae]. Large, eye-catching red fruit with shiny black seeds. Raw or roasted seeds taste similar to peanuts. Sap used by Aborigines in northern Australia to treat wounds and stings.
Coral Bean - The red seeds of Coral Bean (Erythrina herbacea) remain nestled in their open pod in the back yard of our vacation rental near Pawleys Island. They are toxic to humans, and since they have persisted into the late Winter it seems likely that there are no animals there that eat them.
