Wombat Berry
The Wombat Berry is a twining plant that may also be a scrambling groundcover. Wombat Berry is hardy in a range of soils and climates and prefers part-shade. It has linear shaped leaves up to 10cm in length and the flowers can be white or pink to mauve. Round bright orange fruit split and expose shiny, black seeds. The fleshy root tubers are edible with an earthy, sweet taste and were eaten by Aboriginal people both raw and baked.
