Sweet Gum Trees Produce "Fruit"

The Sweet Gum Tree produces what are referred to as "gumballs". They look like small ornaments, are brown, and may contain as many as 50 seeds, which are eaten by squirrels, birds, and chipmunks. These "gumballs" stay throughout the winter and fall in the early spring.
