These dumpling-shaped seed pods lined the side of the drive thru at Chik-fil-A. Google Lens identified it as a tree native to Australia from Brachychiton genus. The pods are called Kurrajong, which are nutritious that can be eaten raw or cooked though extracting the seeds can irritate skin.
The tree trunk is described as having a swollen appearance because it stores water to survive during warmer months. I wish I’d taken a closer look at the trunk, but the drive thru line was moving forward sparing me a few seconds to take these pictures.
Squirrels must love this tree!
