    I saw these about a year ago in Bunnings and decided to look into them. Interestingly, they are supposed to have the highest number of antioxidants than any other fruit, far higher than blueberries or even acai berries.

    On the weekend, I noticed them again in Bunnings and just wondering if anyone has heard or them or possibly has them growing well in Adelaide? Apparently, they have small sweet berries, but the tricky thing is that they are male/female plants and if you get a female it will still fruit by itself, but a male by itself is useless…and it’s almost impossible to tell without the flowers (it seems, and even then still difficult).

    cheers

    Planted one here last year and it has weathered our cold winter well Gabs. Didn’t know about the male and female issue so will be keeping an eye on it over spring.
