With a sweet-sour flavour, the berries are a favourite fresh fruit, while dried fruits can be used as a raisin substitute. Do not eat the calyx (paper husk) around the fruit. Berries are rich in vitamins and minerals and leaf juice has been used medicinally, but is not a common domestic medicinal herb.
Please note that due to stock-take and a phenomenal start to the season, the MeadowSweet online shop will not fulfill orders for a few weeks (10 Nov - 20 Nov) . You can still catch me at the Orewa Farmers Market, or you are most welcome to send inquiries on plant availability.
Thank you !
