This is the fruit of a Staghorn Sumac, Rhus typhnia. It gained its common name because its branches are forked and covered in a layer of fuzzy hairs, much like the velvet-coated antlers of a deer. Its impressive seeds make it a beautiful ornamental, and parts of the plant can be used in natural dyes. [x]
