Boobialla - Native Juniper

Doesn't arrive alive?
We'll refund you!*

Australian-grown
and Owned.

Great for cooking!

 

The name might make you giggle, but its fruits are no joke! Think of sweet, bright purple fruit loaded with botanical notes that when dried and added like a spice, gives a subtle piney and peppery touch. Native Juniper / Boobialla (Myoporum insulare) fruiting beings in late summer, with the fruit edible straight off the plant or kept aside for jams, tarts or even home ferments like sauerkraut or kombucha!
