Believe it or not, these little alien pods are apparently good for the eatin'. I didn't know this at the time, so I can't offer any personal opinions, although I don't think this batch was ripe yet, anyway.

    I have one of these. I didn’t know they were edible until a plant expert friend saw my tree.

    These look ripe to me. Leave them any longer and the squirrels will get all of them. Which is what happened to me this year, I only picked three before the little bastards cleaned me out.

    To eat, I cut them in half and then lick out the custard-like goo. There are three seeds per fruit to avoid.
