Never seen anything like that. I have native citrus and that's not what they look like. I will ask my Forestry guy and let you know what he says.

Carrotwood tree. Kill it.

"It was placed on the Florida Noxious Weed List in 1999, which makes it illegal to introduce, possess, transport, or sell in the state."

My Forestry guy says it’s an akee fruit of the Sapindaceae soapberry family. It is supposedly poisonous unless ripe.

My Jamaican neighbor has one, ackee tree.
Said they are posinious if not ripe. His faimly makes ackee and salt fish with it. I've ever tried it though.

Yup. The FPL right of way behind my house is loaded with them. I already killed all of the air potatoes and pepper trees, these are next. Garlon will knock the snot out of them.

Hmmm Florida. Probably need a $1600 permit and permission from the HOA to take it down.

The HOA probably bans you from even having a carrot wood. I am surprised they can sell them. They are almost as invasive as Brazilian Pepper.

If you're homesteaded, you can use an unlicensed journeyman chainsaw operator. Don't even need to check his green card.

I don't think they look identical; the OP's shot shows the wavy leaves (like a potato chip) of the carrotwood and the fruit size is much different.
