If they're really what you say, I think I see now why some anglos call the pits of fruit "stones." Those were fruity once, no?

Yes, they're what I say. The one on the left is commonly called "monkey heart." Why the suspicion?

They just look so much like rocks to me. I guess I don't get around rainforests enough. But I stopped being dubious once I thought of what comes out the business ends of agoutis and other seed dispersers that eat the fruit. You didn't say anything about the fruit issue though.
