i don't mind if find you in my backyard !!!
you can take the photos of everything ... there is nothing to hide ... :-))
as for neighbour's backyards, better don't do that ... some of them have an alarm !!!!

anyhow, marzipan fruit looks similar as almond, but it has that stuff in the middle ( i don't know in english ), as apricot. just smaller ...
but, i'll see the fruits on this one in some other life, maybe ... it's too young.

somebody told you a tall tale! marzipan is made of almonds! i even looked it up in the encyclopedia for you, because i remembered the main ingredient. :::::

a malleable confection of crushed almonds oralmond paste, sugar, and whites of eggs. Soft marzipan is used as a filling in a variety of pastries and candies; that of firmer consistency is traditionally modeled into fanciful shapes, such as miniature fruits, vegetables, and sea creatures, and coloured realistically.

Confectioners recognize two methods of making marzipan. The German variety is a mixture of almonds and sugar ground coarse and heated until dry; after cooling, glucose and icing sugar are added. French marzipan is not cooked, but sugar is boiled with water and added to the almonds to render a finer, more delicate texture and whiter colour.
marzipan tree :-))))

yes i know it is almond tree .... but are you sure that every sort of almond is good to make marzipane of ???
i think, that's the catch ... that's why people call it marzipan tree ...
or .... just somebody started to call it like that and everybody do the same now ... :-)
however, i'm waiting for the chocolates !!!!!
don't take this literally !!!! :-)))
