Talk about a mystery seed.

I couldn’t find a labelled photograph online to verify the identification (the seed is round and white item is a grain of rice added for scale).

    I’m not making any guesses this week, but I wanted to say how awesome it is that this is Week #244 of Mystery Seed of the Week. Simply Awesome!

    Thanks for noticing. It can be a challenge to find new seeds, but it always seems to come together somehow.

    And, I do take suggestions 🙂

    Maybe Camellia japonica?

  4. Roberta

    They do look similar before the Camellia fruit break open. This one has had the outer covering removed.

    I have seen this before but cant recall it! Any chance of a picture with the outer covering intact?

    Craig,

    I added a photo with the covering visible to the answer post http://blog.growingwithscience.com/2015/04/seed-of-the-week-indian-hawthorn/

    As you will see, I’m not 100% sure I have the right plant so I’d like to see what you think.
