Lilly Pilly (Syzygium Smithii)

There are over 60 different vaerieties of Lilly Pilly that are edible. This fruit features widely in traditional Aboriginal medicine. It is used as a treatment for sore ears, wounds and skin conditions, and is generally consumed as an immune system booster. Since learning about Lilly Pilly’s high levels of vitamin C, vitamin E, magnesium and potassium, and its potential applications in health, medicine and cosmetics, Western science now considers these ancient 'medicine berries' to be a native superfood.
