Native Cherry (Exocarpus cupressiformis) coming into season in Kariong. I'm going to group these with ripening season of the Five Corner fruit, Sour Current bush, Common Lilly Pilly, Native grape (Kangaroo vine Kincumber Mountain) and the introduced Loquat and Mulberries.
August/September isn't a bad season for fruit. It seems that while the Sydney Golden Wattle (Acacia longifolia) is still in flower, there's still some decent fruit around... Once the Golden Wattle flowers die back, we move into the season of the Geebung fruit, Devils twine fruit and some of the various edible Wattle seed species.
