Maybe Riberry Syz.leuhmannii, or Syz.paniculatum or Syz.fibrosum.
Other Nth Qld types may have better fruit
(Syz.suborbiculare, Syz. erythrocalyx)
but riberry is pretty good to eat.
Possibly Syzygium better suited for liquers??.

Davidson plum is said to make a good dry red wine.

Thank you Jakfruit. I will see if I can get a Riberry.
I have just planted a Davidson plum. I can't wait till it fruits and I can give it a go.
I have made a few wines but the best by far has been blackberry.

spekky, rhiberry is rubbish. It's possum food. You don't want that.

What you want is a wax jambu; these are sold by daleys.

I never walk past a ripe Lilly Pilly without doing a taste test. While visiting Newcastle last year I found a large bush producing exceptionally sweet fruit, and they are rare. It was the wrong time of the year to take cuttings, but will definitely be back to get some.

John those birthday cake annona are going to be something special. Smallest annona seeds I've ever seen--about the size of apple seeds.

Not sure you can grow wax jambu in Lilydale Vic.
Not sure how it would turn out as a wine, the fruit is already ethereal.

Blue Lilly Pilly - Syzygium oleosum - having fruit now.

It's the first time to try the Blue Syzygium fruit and found it to be a little better than most in this family. The fruit were light and crisp with the faint perfume of lavender flavour. Reminded me a bit like a wax jambu and some reports suggested they taste like giant Laulaus but have never tried those so I can't compare.

Would be interested to hear if you concur. Thank you.
