    So I need some help discovering this Tree/Bush in my front yard. It is actually mixed in with a Cherimoya tree, I just never bothered figuring out what it was until now. This Bush/Tree produces these weird berry/nut/fruit things with a seed inside. Could someone help me figure out what this is? (pictures included)

    Thanks!

    Hmmm...I live in the northeast. Don't think that what I know about plants will help you! Maybe someone else on this site can.

    Looks like mature Hedera helix, or similar ivy.

    Welcome to stew!

    Definitely ivy with its berries. Old ivy I have seen with a 18" trunk. Was in an old part of town. Some of my well trimmed ivy hedge (covering a wire fence) has trunks 3-4". For some reason they seem to change their leaf structure some on old stems prior to forming flowers/berries.

    Jewell, I have heard about the leaf change in mature ivy plants.
