Tasmanian Snow Berry Seeds - delicious fruits (Gaultheria Hispida)
Price for Package of 5 seeds.   
Gaultheria hispida is an evergreen Shrub growing to 0.9 m (3ft). It is hardy to zone 9. It is in flower from May to June. The flowers are hermaphrodite (have both male and female organs) and are pollinated by Insects.

The spectacular fruits, comprising a swollen calyx surrounding a dry capsule which give it the common name of Snow Berry, are edible. Fruit - raw or cooked is Somewhat bitter. Not unpleasant, they taste somewhat like gooseberries when cooked but with a slight bitterness. The fruit is about 8 - 10mm wide.
