I am new to this site.I am glad I found it! I live in St.Loui
Missouri(USA) and around my neighborhood there are a bunch of frui
bearing trees, the fruit it yellow in color and about the size of
cherry. The fruit really really stinks! I guess because alot of it ha
fallen to the ground and people stepping on them. I am sure they don
smell that bad undamaged. I was just wondering if anyone had any clu
to what tree this is. Btw it is a short tree not tall.

Think of it like this, we're all at home watching TV, with satellite,
digital and a remote control which enables us to pick exactly what we
want to see. Gardenbanter members are like homeless people standing on
the street looking through a shop window at the TV program someone else
selected, you haven't got a remote to control your view and can't
actually hear the sound track. So you don't even know that Travis sings
all his posts in a wonderful baritone.
editing replies so that you only reply to the other person's salient

If it smells like dog crap, it is probably a female Ginko tree. They have
very distinctive triangular leaves. It is a very ancient tree. Take a look
Ginkgo was my first thought! Because of the smell of the fruit, my
daughter's friend used to call them "stink trees." And interestingly, they
don't usually start to bear until they're @ 20 years old or so.

Yes, and I heard a story some years ago about a landscaper in the
Minneapolis/St. Paul area that lost his shirt when the supposed male ginkgos
he provided bore fruit and had to be removed.
Another interesting tidbit from these parts -- a local high end gift shop
uses a ginkgo leaf as it's logo and paid big bucks to have ginkgos planted
on two sides of their store between the sidewalk and street. Click here if
