"What's That?" Wednesdays

I thought I'd try something new on this blog - a weekly photo puzzle.  Starting today, Wednesday posts will feature a close-up view of something from the natural world.  Please try your hand at guessing and post your answer in the comments section below.  Sometimes there will be hints.  Answer to this week's photo puzzle will be published next Wednesday. Good luck! 

What's That?

Hint:  a fruit found in Oklahoma,Texas and Arkansas, not native to Massachusetts but can be found here


  1. Cecilia - This is really a coincidence. I also posted about Osage-orange today. As a kid, these fruits were one of my favorite toys.

  2. It looks like a Custard Apple (Annona reticulata).

  3. We're stumped! We even went and did research on Texas fruit and searched some exotic fruit databases. It actually looks like this thing they sell at our grocery that they call a 'hedgehog fruit' -- we're not supposed to eat it, but just put it in the house and it is supposed to keep away insects. For a moment we wondered if it was a Ugli fruit, but we don't think those would grow in Massachusetts . . .
