Easy to identify when flowering. because the flowers smell somewhat
like chocolate!
Thanks The plant looks familiar, never seen them flower before but I'll be sure to look now!

Twice a year, I scavenge all kinds of citrus fruit, grapefruit, oranges tangerines, lemons, from branches that overhang the sidewalk and alleys. Does that count?
Also, right now, I can gather "fake" pomegranates. I have given these to The Kid (I didn't want to try them myself in case they were poisonous! :p) and she says that they taste much like the real thing, but the flesh is white instead of red and the tree beats fruit twice a year (I understand that real pomegranates are univoltine), like just about everything else around here.

Don't think you can call it foraging but you made me laugh
Never heard of fake pomegranates, must google it. Sounds interresting.

I'm going foraging later today...in the produce department. Much of what I need does not grow around here unless in a garden and that season is over. I also have an allergy to buckshot which is what I would get if I started foraging in gardens...

They aren't shooting because your are foraging in the garden. They are shooting because an ogress is in the garden.
