No, it is not one of Dr Seuss’ creations. It is a semi-tropical evergreen tree that produces lots and lots of golf ball sized yellow fruits. We discovered one while walking Peter the other night, and it piqued our curiosity. It originally came from China or Japan, and has many uses. It can be pickled, made into jam, used in salsa, or made into pie filling.
Now, there appears to be another, more worthy, use for this little fruit with the silly name. There is some interest in the leaves as a treatment in skin cancer!
