Native Pigface

 Native Pigface is a hardy Australian native ground cover. Bright pink daisy flowers cover the bush throughout most of the year with the main flush in spring and summer. Is drought hardy and suitable for sandy soils and coastal positions. Prefers a full sun position and is suitable for pots. The leaves can be pickled into a preserve, and the fruit produced in late summer makes an excellent snack.

The fruit is tasty, sweet, and is somewhere between a salty kiwi with touches of melon. To eat, you tea the fruit and suck out the inner flesh.

Harvesting: The fruit is ripe when it becomes soft and a deep red colour. 

Growing Conditions: Since Pigface is a ground cover, it can cover large areas with no issue. It can tolerate a range of conditions including sandy or clay soils, and is drought tolerant so watering won't become an issue. It grows well, but slowly, in pots, and makes a beautiful display plant with the brightly coloured flowers.

Size: It is a terrific ground cover and can cover large areas.

Arrived in perfect condition. Growing really well and already using it in my cooking

Pig face.

Such a disappointing name for such a wonderful plant. Arrived well packaged (as always), straight into a pot and is thriving.
