Fuchsia is a genus of flowering plants that consists mostly of shrubs or small trees. The first to be scientifically described, Fuchsia triphylla was discovered on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic) about 1696?1697 by the French Minim monk and botanist, Charles Plumier, during his third expedition to the Greater Antilles. He named the new genus after German botanist Leonhart Fuchs (1501?1566). Almost 110 species of Fuchsia are recognized. Most fuchsias are shrubs from 0.2 to 4 m (8 in to 13 ft 1 in) tall, but one New Zealand species, the k?tukutuku (F. excorticata), is unusual in the genus in being a tree, growing up to 12?15 m (39?49 ft) tall. The flowers are very decorative; they have a pendulous teardrop shape and are displayed in profusion throughout the summer and autumn, and all year in tropical species. They have four long, slender sepals and four shorter, broader petals; in many species, the sepals are bright red and the petals purple (colours that attract the hummingbirds that pollinate them), but the colours can vary from white to dark red, purple-blue, and orange. A few have yellowish tones. The ovary is inferior and the fruit is a small (5?25 mm) dark reddish green, deep red, or deep purple berry, containing numerous very small seeds. The fruit of the berry of Fuchsia is reportedly among the best-tasting. Its flavor is reminiscent of citrus and black pepper, and it can be made into jam.
