Strawberry-tree berry picking

The strawberry-tree berries become ripe, from green, to yellow, to orange, to red, and ready for picking not all at once in the same tree. Harvest starts in September and fruits ripen progressively until December. They are beautiful trees full of fruits.

This berries have a growth-maturing cycle that lasts for about 8 months - from January-March until September-December. Once red they are the sweetest thing, that make you dizzy if you eat just enough ...

Besides the berry yield, these trees prunings/leaves are loved by goats. Useful for feeding goats during rainy winter days. They recover very well from pruning and coppice or pollared. The wood is red and hard, a very good for firewood and char and for stakes or poles, to hold the grapevines for instance.
