Melastoma affine (Cutting) 10/10

Springfields1's Edible Fruits
Update: 698 days 6hrs

Comments: -

It was bought with fruit on the plant. The fruit is chewed and is quite nice, but, it turns your tongue blue. I am not sure if it will cope with Melbourne's winter yet.  Also, it needs carpenter bees for pollination and they are not found in Melbourne.

Where did you find this variety of feijoa? Thought it was only a NZ variety.
