I collected Staphyllea pinnata seeds many times but I've never heard they are tasty. It could be interesting to taste them. Here is a photo of them. Sorry without anything to understand the size.

Wow, never seen that many before! Good picture, Olga! Does it grow wild in your area?

It's hardy enough to grow here in gardens and to produce good seeds.
But after your images I have to think what Staphyllea I have.  ???

Euell Gibbons (the best known wild forager in the US in the 1960-1970s) says in his book "Handbook of Edible WildPlants":
Now that's a name I haven't heard since reading Organic Gardening and Farming magazine back in the '70s!
