Makes a really nice lolly when boiled in sugar like a toffee (cut in half lengthways first) | Joan Chan - Wamuran, QLD 08-Nov-2006

Our small tree is not even a meter tall but is smothered in fruit,delicious to eat whole with its enticing sweet/tart flavour. Going to make some into marmalade with an additional lemon or two to bulk it out. | Julia Brougham - Mayfield West, NSW 30-Jun-2015
