Notes:

Can anyone tell me what this is? The tree is about 15 feet tall and is absolutely covered with what looks like gooseberries. We are in Kansas City, but that might not be as important as usual because it is in a park that is noted for specimen trees that are brought in from all over the world… there is no label on this particular tree. I was wondering if the berries are edible.

    Wish I could see other details to be certain. I’m guessing these pods might be the Chinese/Japanese scholar tree (Styphnolobium japonicum).(?). Check it out and see if you have a match. The link below with further information of its toxicity level. Best wishes! https://plants.ces.ncsu.edu/plants/all/sophora-japonica/
