These seeds were collected from Robinia pseudoacacia, also known as Black Locust, Yellow Locust, and False Acacia. This tree likes to live in full sun where it can grow up to 40 feet high. The white blossoms are very fragrant and attract a wide variety of birds, bees, and butterflies from late spring until early summer. The seeds can be boiled and eaten like peas. An intoxicating drink can be made from the skin of the fruit and a vanilla substitute called Piperonal can be obtained from the plant. The flowers can also be cooked and used to make jams, drinks, and pancakes. USDA Hardiness Zones 5 to 9.
