Pink Mountain Berry
The Pink Mountain Berry is native to Victoria and Tasmania where it grows from the coastal strip up into semi-alpine climes. It can also be found in New Zealand, New Guinea and some Pacific Islands. This plant prefers a moderate winter and cool, moist summers.
A member of the Ericacae family (heaths and heathers) it grows to 1.5 metres high with much the same spread, has juniper-like prickly leaves and such wide distribution is adaptable to most soils. The white flowers are tubular and seen in winter/spring followed by deep pink, fleshy fruits (drupes) about 10mm in diameter. The fruit is edible both raw or cooked and was often used for ‘bush tucker’.
Offered is a packet of approximately 25 seeds with propagation notes.
All seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
