What are Ruhbi Red Bayberries?
RuhbiRed Bayberries are a round fruit with a soft, pebbly, waxy, exterior. The deep red colour seen on the outside of the berry matches the colour of its pulp. There is a small pip inside the middle, just like a cherry, so be aware when biting into them! When bitten into, the taste of the Ruhbi Red Bayberry is light, sweet and tangy.
