CHINESE RED BAYBERRY
Botanical Name: Morella rubra
Besides eating fresh, the fruits may be dried, canned, soaked in liquor. There are two main types of fruits a sour type used for making dried fruit and a sweet type used for juice and fresh eating. The bayberry is an evergreen dioecious tree with separate male and female plants. The skin is typically a deep, brilliant red, but may vary from white to purple. The flesh colour is similar to surface color, or somewhat lighter. The flesh is sweet and very tart. At the center is a single seed, with a diameter about half that of the whole fruit.
