Austromyrtus dulcis – Midgenberry

This versatile small shrub is one of the best bush tucker plants of all, featuring small but sweet-tasting berries that are borne in profusion in late summer and early autumn. It makes an attractive border, rockery or pot plant and can even be trimmed into a low growing hedge. It flowers in early summer and should be kept well-fed and mulched after that to ensure a good harvest of berries. Give it a light trim after harvest and you will be well rewarded the following season.
