Rosewood III

This is the fruit of the rosewood tree close to maturity. When it's completely ripe, it looks much like a black olive. Many people also observe that the fruit looks like an acorn from an oak tree. I've planted a few of these seeds but so far not one has germinated. Just recently I discovered why; insects bore holes into the fruit before they fall from the tree.
