Riberry (Syzygium leuhmanii) is one of Australia’s most popular native plants and a delicious bush food addition to your garden!

Riberries are a member of the Lilly Pilly family and are a highly ornamental, small-medium, fast-growing tree adapted to grow in the sub-tropical rainforests of the East Coast of New South Wales and Southern Queensland. Its glossy green foliage, striking pink/purple new growth and large, decorative pink to red fruit makes the Riberry appealing as an edible hedge, screen, windbreak or shade tree. 

Glover’s Seedless is a new cultivar of Riberry with mostly seedless fruit. Bursting with unique spice flavours such as clove and cinnamon, their tart, apple-like berries can be eaten straight from the tree as a tasty snack or used in jams, chutneys, syrups, dressings, sauces, glazes, ice cream, yoghurt, cakes and beverages. Riberry also comes from the clove family and makes a great addition to sauces or marinades for poultry, lamb, pork and game meats.
