I think the photo of the very large tree which is located about a mile from me at San Diego State University. It's one of the largest sausage trees in the U.S. and supposedly the second largest after the one at UCLA (University California at Los Angeles) in California (largest known and documented, I should say). This one at San Diego State University typically produces hundreds of pods.

I'll post a couple of my older pics of the large tree at San Diego State University. I do need to get over there and take some more recent pics. The pics I took were from back in 2008.

Thanks.. When you next visit, please take some very close-up photos of the pods. Would be interesting to see.

That's most likely going to be the closest I could get. This tree in Balboa Park is small. Most of the other trees are too tall to get good photos.
