Strawberry Gum Plant

Doesn't arrive alive?

Australian-grown
and Owned.

Great for
cooking!

 

If you love desserts (who doesn’t?!), then Strawberry Gum is a MUST try!

A type of Eucalyptus found in the northern parts of New South Wales, this rare and fast-growing tree has a distinct fruity flavoured leaf. These leaves make an excellent addition to any homemade jam, chocolate, or even teas, adding a slightly acidic flavour with fruity undertones. If you are interested in creating your own bush food pantry then this plant is a great place to start.
