Midyim/Midgen Berry (Austromyrtus dulcis)

Midyim is a small shrub that grows up to 2 m. Native to a small coastal area of Queensland and New South Wales, its white flowers are followed by speckled white, soft, sweet berries that ripen in summer and autumn. Known as one of Australia’s tastiest wild fruits, Midyim is a highly favoured fruit for several coastal Aboriginal groups. As well as being delicious, Midyim berries are high in minerals.
