France, July 2022 :: Tree for ID :: ARK2022-098: 3 high res. images.
This was clicked in the Palace gardens, Versailles, France in July 2022.
Requested to please ID.

Apologies for the quality of the pics.

Actually I was surfing FoI website for some names and I stumbled upon this fruit pic there, so my assumption.


Pl. check Staphylea colchica as per

Yes …, It does resemble Staphylea colchica but cannot be conclusively decided.
