Apple Berry Plant // Billardiera scandens

 

Apple Berry is a fantastic native plant that produces delicious apple-textured berries. Their flavour is described as somewhere between stewed apples and kiwifruit. It's a beautiful plant which makes an excellent climber, or ground cover. 


Clusters of bright bell-shaped pink flowers come during spring, offering nectar to bees and other important insects. 

 
When ripe (purple-yellow colour), they are edible off the plant. However, if green you can roast them too. Great as a snack, for jams, tarts, cakes, or preserving. 

AVAILABLE VIC/NSW/QLD/ACT ONLY - We ship our plants via Express Post on Mondays to prevent them from being kept over the weekend. If you've ordered other products, they will be delivered together. Please note, we take care in packaging your plants, but we do not take responsibility if your parcel is delayed. 

 

Harvesting: Spring/Summer harvest of berries. 

 

Growing Conditions: Apple Berry is a fantastic plant for pots. They do well in many soil types, and as a versatile plant can be placed in sunny to shady positions. They're so hardy that they can tolerant harsh positions such as under Eucalyptus.

 

Size: It can be a climber or a ground cover. It grows up to 1.5 metres tall as a climber, or up to 3 metres wide if planted as a ground cover.
