It looks like a Camellia japonica with seed pods.

Looking at the bottom of the fruit it reminds me of Garcinia xanthochymus.

Camellia fruit do not look like this.

I had a chance to look at it again and Camellia japonica seems to be correct!

The large leaves look like camellia japonica leaves to me as well. The 'fruit' is a camellia seed pod. It turns reddish later on -like an apple- and opens up.
