Jack in the Pulpit Fruits

We have several of these wonderful plants growing around our property in various flower beds.  I particularly love them since they are Pennsylvania natives.

Anyway, the growing season is over, the plants have withered, and the fruits are set:

These are the fruits of two plants that grew closely together.  The larger fruit is about the size of a golf ball, if elongated.  The color in this image is true: a very scarlet red.

I should read up on whether the fruit is edible or has any medicinal uses.  Regardless, it sure is pretty!
