ORANGE BERRY

Orange BerryBotanical Name: Glycosmis trifoliata
Description

Native to rainforest and vine thickets in tropical Australia to as far south as Bundaberg and spread into Asia this is an attractive small tree with tasty berries. Tiny white fragrant flowers are followed by small orange to pink juicy fruits that are sweet and honey flavoured with resinous overtones. Obviously related to the citrus family the foliage is glossy and aromatic. Perfect for use in a mixed screen or bush food garden the orange berry is also a host plant for the swallow tailed butterfly when the plant is young. Fruits make a delicious jam that taste similar to candied honey.

Question & Answer

Hi will the Orange Berry Tree grow in Kenthurst in Sydney. Postcode 2156, Sydney sandstone understorey position. From: CARLINGFORD NSW

Do you get frosts each year ? If so I would not recommend it because they are sensitive to frosts, They are not as frost hardy as normal oranges & mandarine trees and suit a more subtropical climate. Otherwise if you don't get many frosts yes it would be good to give it a go. #OrangeBerry1526

With lackadasical care the berries are rather bland, but turn to WOW with organic treatment of foliar sprays and organic matter worked into the soil. | Patti Mcgauley - Lakeland, FL 18-Jun-2008

We have had this species in the nursery for over 5 years now and they would stand at about 2 metres tall. Mostly grown in part shade. This year they have had a good crop of fruit and are very sweet with a slightly peppery aftertaste. | Morisset Nursery - Morisset, NSW 21-Apr-2014

The idea of sweet honey like fruit sounded great. I have had berries now and have to say they tasted a bit unpleasant and like medicine :) Could be just me though. No sure if I will keep these because there is very little fruit to seed ratio.
