    There haven't been any stumpers for quite a while. I'll try one.

    This may be too easy for some.

    Although the surface texture probably isn't right for that one.

    A. menziesii...?

    Initially thought Morus but reconsidered.
    Neither is it Maclura pomifera.

    Yes Arbutus menziesii. I thought it might be obvious. I thought it might be something many people haven't seen up close though. The fruit on the Sunshine Coast are beautiful and abundant this year.
