Cranberry myrtle

Anyone here growing this? Does it require acidic soil? How is the taste? Some descriptions I found say almost perfume like. Just curious if it’s worth growing.


Myrteola nummularia also known as ñaurapo, daudapo or cranberry myrtle.

I’ve been growing it for a couple years in soil just a hair on the acidic side, but not far below neutral. So far so good in terms of plant health. I noticed flowers on it last year, but never saw fruit. I couldn’t say whether or not fruit was set as our chickens sometimes wander into areas they aren’t welcome (such as where my daudapo is growing).
