2022 Season has finished.
Victorian grown Bayberries in season now for 2-3 weeks from early to mid/late January 2022.
Famous internationally as both a summer indulgence and a superfruit, these Ruhbi Red Bayberries grown in Victoria are known for their complex texture and sweet-tart herbal taste. They are high in antioxidants such as vitamin C.
Bayberries are also known as champoy, or tsampoy in the Philippines; but recognised in its dried preserved form. In Malaysia and Indonesia, they have only been available preserved in packets. Try them fresh now.
The fruit is usually spherical, 1.5–2.5 cm in diameter, with a knobby surface. The surface colour is typically a deep, brilliant red, but can vary from white to purple. The flesh colour is similar to surface color, or somewhat lighter. The flesh is usually sweet, and very tart. At the center is a single seed, with a diameter about half that of the whole fruit.
Available in a box of 4x 200g punnets; or a single 200g punnet.
