Syzygium oleosum fullscreen
A native tree with delightful purple fruit this is a favourite of the lilly pilly group. The delicate fruit is aromatic with a sweetish slightly gingery or turpentine flavour. Fruit is spongy and delicate. The glossy green leaves have numerous large oil glands that give a distinctive smell when crushed and distinguish it from other lilly pillies.

I know you can eat the fruit - but can you eat the seed inside too?

Don't ever eat the seeds of the lillypilly - just the flesh. It is great to add to fresh garden or fruit salad, providing that it will get eaten that day. Try won't regret it!!
