Orange Berry

Glycosmis trifoliata

Orange Berry

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.
Other Names: Pink Fruited Lime Berry

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.

I have 3 of them in Mackay, they are doing ok fruiting as a tiny bush 0.5 of a meter. pulp is beautiful best thing I have tasted, but skin itself is horrid taste and lingers in mouth. and a large seed, hope skin tastes better when tree larger.

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.

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.
