Need help identifying backyard shrub

mjduffApril 9, 2010

Trying to find the name of this shrub in my friend's backyard -- has alternating leaves and unique-looking fruit/seeds, which are round with red-tipped protrusions.

Thanks so much!

I guess it's called Strawberry Tree, it can grow up to 10-15 feet tall.
