In the Summer, this plant produces edible red berries that are apple-like in texture with a mild sweetness. They may be eaten freshly picked from the tree, or made into jams, jellies, muffins, biscuits, cakes and wine.
Flowering begins in late-Spring/early-Summer with clusters of white fluffy flowers appearing across the branches. Fruits start out pale, but are ready to harvest when they turn pink or dark red.
Brush Cherry is a hardy species that tolerates dry conditions and most soil types once established. However, as a rainforest plant, it prefers rich, well-drained soils kept moist throughout the year. For best results, plant in full sun or part shade.
