Midyim Berries (aka midgen berry or sand berry) is one of the most delicious bushfood plants. Native to the sub-tropical eastern coast, they are hardy and grow in cool conditions well.


The Midyim Berry shrub grows white berries with purple dots that taste sweet, mildly spicy and super delicious. They're a great habitat for bees and butterflies, and grow extremely well in pots.


Fruiting occurs immediately, with peak fruiting after 3-4 years.

How to Grow

Native bushfood plants are a fantastic suburban addition that produce kilos of fresh, nutritious flavours that can be used fresh, in preserves, or in a roast salad. They are indigenous to this land so if you're going to grow plants for food, why not make them Australian native food plants?
