I don't know what the tree is but that isn't fruit. The "fruit" is a gall that grows on a tree after a certain kind of wasp lays her eggs there. Chemicals associated with the "sting" make the tree grow this structure that the larvae use as a food source and shelter until they emerge as adults.

I probably butchered that explanation a bit but you get the idea.

Yes, whatever Kelly said. Smiling
