HAVE YOU EVER TRIED THIS BERRY?

This small dark red fruit grows on the corbezzolo (strawberry tree in English), a bush that can be found everywhere in South Sardinia.

The berry, only 1-2 cm in size, blooms from October to December and generate fruits the following autumn. The extracts of the berries , leaves and flowers have astringent, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic and digestive properties.

The corbezzolo fruit is edible and can be used to make jams, jellies, syrups, juices, creams, sauces and candies. So why not try them next time you see them on your way?
