Skunk cabbage, I suspect.

I would surmise that they are immature pine cones.

Could it be the fruit of Skunk-cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus)?

Are they posed, or is that how they were found?
July 16, 2012 at 12:22 pm
I believe that is how they were found, Kathie.

Undeveloped pitch pine cones?

My first guess would be that it’s related to cones of some evergreen. Aren’t there scrub pines in that neck of the woods?

I believe scrub pines are found throughout Massachusetts, Jan.

whatever they are, they are quite small …

Is it a fruit from a tree relative to the osage orange?

Looks like a pine cone to me.

I would guess fruit of a skunk cabbage

Is it “old man of/in the woods?
July 16, 2012 at 10:03 pm
I think it is a cone of some kind.

Looks like Symplocarpus foetidus
