Mystery fruit seed?

    3 responses

I found a strange fruit seed buried by a fox in a rural area near Wagerup. I've planted it to see if it will grow, but it hasn't sprouted yet.

It is about the same size as a Zamia seed but much heavier and a bit differently shaped, pretty sure none of the other local native plants have even remotely similar seeds. It still has bits of dried flesh and skin, it would have had orange flesh and glossy orange skin. The flesh still has a faint smell, it's sweet and a bit tangy and reminds me of dried apricot or mango.

I've attached some photos, one shows it next to a Zamia seed for comparison, pretty sure it's not a Zamia.

Does anybody have any idea what it might be? I'm stumped.

It looks and sounds very like my jelly/wine palm. Do you have any palms nearby? The seeds take about six months to germinate.

I didn't see any palms but it could have been carried some distance by the fox. You might be right!
