Riberry Plant - Medium

1-2 Years Old / Cutting / 40-60cm Height / 200mm Pot

Riberry (Syzygium luehmannii) 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.


This category of Riberry is a Glover’s Seedless variety, grown from cutting, 1 – 2 years old, and 40 – 60cm in height. Trees will come in 150 – 200mm pots.
