The pods have small hair thorns. Tall straight tree. See pic of branch.

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.
