Can I use podocarpus fruit in compost?

I don't have a lot of organic material on my property with which to make compost. But I do have a lot of podocarpus fruit.

Podocarpus is a tree, or at least in my case it is. Developers love to plant it because it grows fast and is a fine tree until it hits 15 years or so. Then it starts to fruit, if it's a female type. Then it develops tons of mostly inedible, yellow, olive size fruits that squish under your feet, but with a round pit inside.

I'm not sure if it's good to use in compost. I imagine the fruit is similar to olives, except not as useful. Has anyone had experience with using it in compost?

Thank you!
