Tasmanian Native Cherry Tree

When we first moved to our property some years ago we were quite excited to find these Native Cherry trees on our property. We thought it an added bonus when we  discovered the tiny fruits on them.
We weren't sure if they were edible until some locals, ie Tasmanian born, told us the to look for the fruit in the summer and that you could eat it.
Each summer the littler children love to gather the fruit and eat it. Apparently it has a tarty flavour, according to some and bland to others. I have never tasted them as I am a chicken in regards to new foods.

It is one of the interesting parts of living on our property.....the opportunity to observe and be part of the nature that is here.

Blessings to you and your homes,

Gae,

Those sure are some tiny little cherries. I could believe that they are a bit tart, as something that small could not have much flavor to it. Of course, that's just my opinion.

Still, what a blessing to have such lovely trees on your property.

Do they have seeds Gae?
I wonder what they'd be like in a pie or as jam?
It's great to have something edible right at your door :-)
A cheerful little blessing.
joy in Crist..Trish
