Actually, this is a hardy perennial and not at all apple like. Unusual and attractive, it is a useful addition to the ground story of any woodland garden, which is its natural habitat where it will spread underground and tolerate quite deep shade. The leaves unfold in the spring like small dark green umbrellas, just two, followed by a single large white or pink flower.
The fruit is bright red, egg shaped and surprisingly big, about 5 cm. Pleasantly flavoured when fully ripe which is usually the early autumn though a bit on the seedy side, it is eaten either raw or cooked.
