Before anything else, thanks to

Maybe you can help me.

We bought a lot in Rizal, which is a mountainous area. There is a peculiar tree in our lot that baffles us all, and we are tempted to chop it down for us to plant a new one, but somehow, we sort of allowed it to live...for now. Maybe you can help me identify this tree :

a tree is known for its fruit, and this is the tree's fruit. It's not edible, and its fruit is something i've never seen before. There's a curious orange spider between the third (from left) and fourth fruit that i just noticed on review of this picture.

This is what the tree looks like. It was raining when I took the picture. It's a tall, sturdy tree with greenish, "testicular" fruits that are inedible.

Foliage of our mysterious tree. It's thin slender arms carry parallel leaves.

So please, if you can identify this tree... please help me. thanks!

i am not sure what your tree is. but i suspect it being a member of annonaceae, the family of atis and ilangilang

dont know what it is. probably a member of the family annonaceae, which includes the atis and ilang ilang.

The leaves are somewhat similar to what call pokok nona in malaysia... but the fruit seem to come out as single from every node... thats rather odd... huh, an interesting tree.
