Myrica esculenta - Bayberry


Out of stock

4 seeds per pack. a.k.a. Myrica nagi. A popular Indian fruit with commercial potential were it not for its short shelf-life. The small, bright red fruits have an excellent, sweet to acidic flavor and are eaten raw or used in desserts. Fruits are commonly collected from the wild for sale in markets and there is smaller scale cultivation. Native to mid-elevation regions in northern India and into Nepal, so there could be potential for some frost tolerance. Similar to M. rubra. Shrubby tree to 36 ft / 12 m. #4669
