Default ID wanted: Mystery seeds from South Africa

Hi all!

My parents brought me back some unknown seeds from their trip to South Africa but did not take a picture of the plant. The name is also not clear.

This is what I know;
-It's from a plant that is growing in a small winery's garden.
-It grows in the Cape Town region
-It is "more like a shrub/small tree"
-The seeds were lying very noticably inder the shrub
-The seeds look black and a bit rough
-The seeds are about the size of blueberries

Here are some pictures;

Any South African members or worldwide members who recognize this?

Currently growing: Musa Sikkimensis | Musa Veinte Cohol (Hom Thong San) | Musa Namwah Kap Khao | Musa Hom Kreak | Musa Balbisiana 'Atia Black'

Never seen them before, but I live in Natal which is very different climate to the Cape. I will try ask around.
