For the very first time we’ve noticed that our Camellia sasanqua “Yuletide’ is having fruits. The furry fruits are pear shaped as big as a finger tip. The hard fruit contains two or three large seeds with the shape and size similar to coffee beans.
“Yuletide’ camellia has vivid single red flowers with prominent yellow stamens. The compact little bush is slow growing and in Australia will mainly flower during March to July, but the flowers can sparingly persist up to early Spring time (September/October). On the Northern part of the world the main flowering time is during Christmas time in which the name ‘Yuletide’ comes from.
