Austromyrtus dulcis - Midgen Berry


Out of stock

8 seeds per pack. One of the most popular bushfoods of Australia, the Midgen Berry is a small, white (and spotted), edible berry with a very nice, sweet flavor that has tones of ginger. The berries can be eaten fresh but are also used in desserts. They spoil quickly after harvest, which has limited their commercial growth, but the species is still cultivated on a small scale. Shrubby growth to several feet. This species will likely do well in subtropical climates and may take some mild frosts, similar to the lilly pilly. Hardy to 15-20F. #4615
