This week's edition of "What is it Wednesday" proved to be a difficult one. We only had one correct answer! So what was the name of this week's plant??
Camellia sinensis or Tea Plant was the correct answer. I have even heard it called Tea Camellia. I think this tree is one of the lesser known edible plants to Florida gardeners. Not to be confused with Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia), from which Tea Tree Oil is harvested. Tea Plant is edible in that it is the main ingredient in several different tea recipes. Just like the name suggests.
This week's winner was Dana and she participated on our Instagram page.
