Botanical Name: Morella rubra
Description

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.

Chinese Red Bayberry

Some Bayberry seedlings I am growing (one in flower for the first time) just love my climate, 1 hour north of Sydney near M1. It has taken around 4 to 5 years from seed to flower. | John McCulloch - Wallarah, nsw 19-Jul-2019

Bayberry - Chinese Red (Seedling) 5/10

Update: 679 days 2hrs

Comments: - Watered by accident with seasol - didnt like that or tap watering - rainwater is best as they dont like chlorine either - they have nitrogen fixing roots and need little if any fertilizer- I pot up new ones in BASIC pot mix but now add some rock dust and some coir and peat moss - also pearlite/vermiculite to lighten mix up.
