They are not edible.

These trees are also called drunken trees because the trunk is big and looks many times like beer belly. I hope the Id is correct.

Dear Nalini and All: Picture in number Ceiba
speciosa-100_6219.JPG seems not to belong to this series.......
fruits seem cicular round ball like, noit cylincrical, and leaves
margins are not smooth... mistake?

I have seen and photographed flowers of this this tree in Southern cal
in sept to nov... never seen fruits....
Thanks for showing the fruits, what was inside the fruits? I am
aking since some already have fallen on the ground...
thanks
Usha di.
