Looking for help with questions about pollination for the Midyim Berry. Does it require pollination and doea it need a plant nearby or will bees do the job? Anyone help. Thanks. I planted out of the pot in April and it is fruiting now (June 2015) I was surprised to see the berries so soon. Must like its spot.Swish...

Such a lovely bush. I must have more! The new growth is furry and white then goes pink and smooth then turns green. But be careful because the stems are thin and woody and very fragile.


It is a really beautiful bush but has a tendency to be rangy so be sure to tip prune to keep it nice and dense.


The pale blue speckly fruit is small but so tastey. I think it tastes like sweet, mild cardamom. Very nice.


Autumn 2011: I broke a big branch off by accident a few months ago. I split it up and planted the 2 pieces. It's been 2 months and they still have leaves... maybe they are going to strike!!! :O)


Summer 2012: No they didn't strike. The leaves held in there for ages but they didn't root. Not that I was too diligent about watering and I didn't use rooting hormone to help them either. Maybe next time I will be a bot more professional about it?


I got a second bush from Santa (which was non-descriptively called Bush Snacks). It is great though because I would very much like a midyim berry informal hedge. I love the folliage and the fruit and I think the berries would make a really great and unusual jam. Maybe I should try harder to strike some babies?

Midyim Berry (Seedling) 8/10

Pademelon1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1878 days 1hrs

Comments: - Growing fast and happily on the street verge, in a harsh position. Watered only to give it a foundation. tasty semi-inconspicuous berries are soft, so best eaten straight from the bush. They seem to push out first, becoming bushy later. Once they get a bit bigger, an occasional light prune seems like a good idea.

VF1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2913 days 24hrs

Comments: -

This is supposed to be one of the few really tasty bush-tucker fruits so I thought I'd try it. Fruit is a small berry that is white with blue-black spots. Generally free of pests and diseases. Is low-growing (gen. 80-100cm) and can be planted in most spots as long as ground is constantly moist.

Fast growing even through our mild winter,but seem to really like water - have been leaving lots of water in the dishes under their pots, and the growth following is really fast.

Spring '12: Have had these in pots for about 5 months, and to my surprise I've noticed scores of flower buds growing.Hope they'll develop, as I'd love to taste these. (Now planted out a week later.)

Should only need bird-netting for fruit.
