Common Name:  Emu Apples, Muntaberry, Monterry

Best Position:  At just under half a metre in height, the Muntrie works in pots, planter boxes and garden beds, filling up gaps, awkward corners and sandy narrow beds.

Plant Description:  This woody plant bears clusters of green berries that turn purplish/red and fragrant as they ripen. Berries are about 1cm in diameter and crunchy in texture with the flavour of a spicy apple. Perfect for eating raw in salads and cheese platters, or cooked in jams, pies, muffins, puddings or with meats. They contain up to four times more antioxidants than blueberries.

Best Uses:  Muntrie is a dense groundcovering plant that handles full sun or dappled shade, as well as sandy soil and some salinity. As a ground cover, it can be used as an effective weed-suppressing species in a garden bed.
