Price for Package of 10 seeds.

This pretty little shrub came to Ireland from southern Chile and Argentina. In its homeland it is one of the dominant plants which grow above the tree line.

WIKIPEDIA:

Gaultheria mucronata, known as prickly heath and in Chilean Spanish as chaura, syn. Pernettya mucronata, is a species of flowering plant in the family Ericaceae, native to southern Argentina and Chile.

It is a compact, bushy, evergreen shrub with glossy green leaves and solitary white flowers in spring, followed in autumn by showy globose berries up to 1.5 cm in diameter, in shades from deep plum purple through pink to pure white. It is dioecious, meaning that both male and female plants must be grown together in order to produce fruit. It prefers moist, shaded conditions.

Its fruits are edible when ripe, they are sweet and juicy but somewhat tasteless, hence useful as survival food. In volcanic areas of southern Chile Gaultheria mucronata is one of the dominant plant species above the tree line.

Fruit is a berry that can be consumed, raw or cooked. It is juicy and almost melts in the mouth.
