Teaser Answered, and Then Some…


We asked readers to ID this seed pod — and generated a little debate.

One of our in-house experts agrees with reader Janet T, who thinks its a Honey Locust seed pod.  Another says it’s a Black Locust pod.

After viewing the video below, we are leaning toward Honey Locust.

(Thanks, Janet!)

    For me the telltale sign is the pointed end. Honeylocust (one word) pods end in a long point, whereas Black Locust (two words) are rounded. So if you find a small flat pod, you can still see the difference.
