Found this on Richland Creek WMA (Trinity River bottom) and donít know what it is
First saw berries? I thought it was a Chinaberry tree but fruit was translucent and leaves and bark all wrong too

I’m glad I ran across this thread, I’ve got 3-4 of those on my place just north of Hutto and have been wondering what they are. Images on the google looks like western soapberry is correct

Maybe a pygmy black walnut

"Fruit" was size of chinaberries

Western Soapberry looks like a match

Should have brought some of those home and used them to shower with

Judging by the bark, it's an old one. Western Soapberries dont get very big and dont get really scaly bark until theyre old
