Wild tamarind, Lorito, Ardillo

Native Costa Rican  ornamental  tree which grows from Mexico to South America and the Antilles. The tree has a beautiful structure, fern like leaves, with dramatic interesting bright red orange oblong twisted fruit. The fruit has a whimsical sense of something out of a Dr. Seuss children's book.
