Category: Riberry (Lilli Pilli)
The lilly pilly (riberry or Syzygium leuhmannii) is an evergreen rainforest plant with glossy green leaves. Many varieties have flushes of colourful new growth, ranging from brilliant pink to a red-brown. In spring to early summer most lilly pillies have fluffy white or greenish flowers followed by long lasting red, purple or whitish berries.
The fruit matures from December to February, being a pear shaped red berry, known as a Riberry but commonly called Lilli Pilli, grows to 13 mm long, covering a single seed, 4 mm in diameter.
