Not all that can be counted, should be counted. Or counted in the way that you are familiar with.

Parkia speciosa (petai), is a large tree plant in the Fabaceae family native to Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, peninsular Thailand and the Philippines (Palawan). The Petai tree bears long, flat edible beans with bright green seeds which have a rather peculiar pungent smell.
