Mock orange? (Philadelphus)

Nothing worth eating! We had them when I was a child in Arizona.

Edited to say that it might be possible to make a marmelade or something with them. They were very sour.

Edited again to say that a lot of different plants are called mock orange. We'd have to determine exactly which one it is.

Yeah, dry dehiscent capsule on that one.

I'm salivating just thinking about it...
