What is this
Green Nespoli (Loquat) fruits?
No no, wait! Chinottos.
Oak apples or oak galls, I can't tell. Very good Silver surfer!!
The reason I posted, and what is really unusual, is that they formed in a seedling in place of the leaves as shown in the pic. It would seem as if the leaves did not form (I did not remove them for the stumper ;o))) at all and the wasp larvae probably injected the chemical into the seedling buds directly (does it make sense?).
On average I pull out of the order of 250000 oak seedlings from my beds each year and this is the first time I see this.
I guessed it had to be rather unusual for you to venture away from the Maple forums Gomero! It is very odd.
What a lot of hard work to remove 250,000 seedling acorns. We only get a few, but it always amazes me how deep they are. Not easy to pull out.
In the U.K there are good acorn years and poor ones (don't know the technical term,)is it the same in France?
I always succeed to enroll some family members to help out!!
Yes, of course, we also have mast years (thanks Michael) in France.
