A friend sent a photo of this fruit and asked if I had any idea of what it is, though someone may be able to help. Thanks

Might depend on where he found it, but it looks like a not-quite developed milk-weed pod.

If that is a stem at the top right, no.

I think you are right. My wife collected 4 recently for their seed and they are lookalikes.

I would also like to see the whole fruit or at least the other side and more of the leaf. My first impression was a fig.
