Strys can you please tell me where you saw this tree? And do you perhaps know what colour the flowers are?

Edit: I don't think it is a Kiggelaria but hopefully i'm wrong :whistle:

I think so also, although the pod is a bit elongated, where the wild peach is more rounded.
The red seeds, "general" shape of the pod and the leaves look a lot like it though.
