Notes:

The plant grows branches from the main wooden stem but rarely split into more branches with very waxy arrow-like leaves. It bears a red berry like plant that has slight divisions (like a naked orange) on the red outer layer then it sheds (or the berry sometimes falls as well) revealing a white fleshy part with most of it is being it’s seed part. Unknown if it’s edible. But there are rumors of it being edible.

    I wish I could see more details of the plant, i.e. flowers & the rest of the plant. I’m guessing this could be a species in the Sauropus genus, the rare Atherton sauropus/Pumkin Bush (S. macranthus). Check out these included link and see if you have a match. According to sources, S. macranthus is edble. Best wishes! http://english.xtbg.cas.cn/rs/ma/201103/t20110303_65845.html
