I'm almost sure this is a California native, I see it often in natural settings. The tree itself is thin limbed and in the fall starts loosing leaves. There is a large pair shape, and almost pear sized fruit that is encased in a fuzzy covering that has a seam in it. When the cover comes off there is a deep reddish brown tomato shaped inside that starts to wrinkle. Would knowing the tree help identify the scales?

Shy spider so the pictures are blurry. The cephalothorax is elongated and has a weak pale center line that doesn't show in the picture.
