Strawberry Myrtle


An aromatic berry with a vibrant flavor and healthful character. 

Strawberry Myrtle is an evergreen shrub that grows wild in the eastern side of the costal range mountains of Chile. Its fruit is of great aroma and flavor. The fruit is used in diverse ways, including jams, infusions, liquours and pastries.

In addition to it's many culinary uses, the plant has many nutritional and medicinal properties. The seed contains a high degree of unsaturated fatty acids and their high content of linoleic acid (78.7 %), enhances their potential as edible oil. Linoleic acid , also important constituent of the fruit and myrtle leaves, is an essential nutrient in prostaglandin synthesis, generation of cell membranes, defense mechanisms and tissue regeneration.

Very similar growing areas exist in the eastern side of the Santa Lucia Mountains of Central California. It is here, on two small plots of lands, where the first commercially grown plants in California are being nurtured to maturity by horticulturist Lina Valenzuela. The first crop is expected by the autumn of 2018!
