Ruby Saltbush is a quaint succulent bearing small berries with a crisp, salty-sweet flavour. It grows in every state across mainland Australia, typically found in the salt marshes of our tropical, sub-tropical and temperate regions.
This species fruits and flowers year-round, producing edible berries about 5-8mm in diameter, ranging in colour from yellow to red. Berries may be eaten raw or soaked in water to make a sweet tea. The leaves are also edible, but as they’re rich in oxalates, they should be cooked before eating, or consumed sparingly.
To harvest, simply pluck the berries and leaves off the main plant.
