I have a Camellia Jap. Many thanks for the info, Scottish and Volunteer. I was so surprised to the the 'fruit', it never occurred that it might be a seed pod. Might be tempted to try and bring it on in the Spring. Once again, thankyou.
I have a Camellia Jap. 'Adiophe' Audusson Var. Inherited from previous owners. The flower is red and long lasting with typical waxy green foliage. To my surprise I see it is bearing a fruit similar to the shape of an apple, with reddish skin with size just slightly larger than a 10p piece. I have never experienced this before with other camellias. Does anyone out there have an explanation, please. I am most curious
