Name that fruit yet again!

Photos by Matt Ball 11/18/2015

These are the fruits of Rough Menodora (Menodora scabra). To see the flowers, click on the link. Yes, they're yellow, but this plant is in the Olive family, like Velvet Ash (Fraxinus velutina).
From the link above:

The flowers are followed by pairs of 1/4 inch (6 mm) wide, translucent, round, green to reddish fruits that dry to a tan color.

I took some fruits (at various stages of maturity) apart, in the name of science.
