Boobialla, commonly known as native juniper, is a small shrub indigenous to the southern regions of Australia. Producing a purple fruit, the Boobialla is great as a wind break, and tolerates a wide range of soils, locations, and can even grow in pots.
Flowering from October to December, fruit begins to produce in late summer with small, sweet purple berries forming later. The small berries are similar to juniper, with spicy, floral notes - perfect for jams, tarts, or even fermentation.
Small white flowers cover the plant in mid October until early December.
When ripe (purple coloured), they are edible off the plant. Great as a snack, for jams, tarts, cakes, or preserving.
