This fact sheet is part of a 13-part native food series.

Riberry is a pear-shaped fruit, 12-15 millimetres in length, with a striking red/cerise colour that fades to pink when cooked.

It is native to sub-tropical areas of Queensland and New South Wales. Wild harvest has been replaced by cultivation, with several plantations on the north coast of New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.
