Leftover Fruit

The lack of leaves on the trees has left them largely anonymous to me.  I realize that I don’t have any good method of identifying one from another without the leaf on them, which seems a bit short-sighted.  I mean, for half the year the trees are without a full leaf on them!  This fruit reminded me of a sumac but it’s on a larger tree.  The seams between the pieces of each part of the fruit caught my eye.  I wonder if that’s just part of the cover or if it will unfold in some way.
