JENNY BARNES, STEVENAGE

A These green growths that turn red­dish are ined­i­ble fruits or camel­lia ap­ples. Some cul­ti­vars, es­pe­cially sin­gle­flow­ered kinds, set more of these than oth­ers, and they might con­tain large oily seeds. These don’t store well but can be ex­tracted and sown now. They should ger­mi­nate quite quickly and will pro­duce plants, though they won’t be the same as the par­ent and will take years to bloom.
