Nyssa sylvatica
Black Tupelo

The inflorescences of Black Tupelo are polygamo-dioecious (meaning that, although most trees are distinctly male or female, some male trees may have a few fruits present in Autumn due to the presence of a few perfect flowers in Spring). Irrespective of their gender, Black Tupelo inflorescences (while noticeable due to their lighter color as compared to the foliage) are ornamentally insignificant.
