If you’ve never been brave enough to give vegie-growing a go because of the time required to maintain them and get a decent yield, why not try a native food plant? As with most Australian natives, they are very hardy and can give you some very interesting and intense flavours without much attention at all. I personally, can’t wait until our finger limes (a green and a pink, like the picture in the article) and davidson’s plums fruit, but we also have seven lillipillies, four midyim berries, three pink-flowering melastomas and three blue gingers that subsist on the odd rain shower and little else. So why not duck down to your local nursery and take a look – now is the best time to plant as it gives the plant time to settle in before the heat of summer creeps back around.
