Strawberry Gum // Eucalyptus olida

Strawberry Gum isn't like any other eucalypt. With a fragrantly fruity, almost bubblegum flavour and aroma, Strawberry Gum is a delicious flavouring for cream-based desserts, baked goods, and other sweets. Endemic to north-eastern Tablelands region of New South Wales, Aboriginal Australians would chew the flavoursome leaves.


Due to its rich essential oils, Strawberry Gum's aromatic flavour is filled with delicious undernotes of basil, strawberries, and red fruits.

It is an excellent addition in all cream based deserts such as Pavlova, or Pana Cotta. Make a Chilli & Strawberry Gum marinade for fish, or sprinkle a bit over a fresh fruit salad. Our favourite is in a Balsamic & Olive oil vinegarette.

It is becoming increasingly used by Gin and Beer manufacturers for its fruity flavour profile.
