Braving the Boxthorn for berries

Beautiful red berries

While I was out photographing for updates to our bushfoods & bush medicines page, I found that most of the Boxthorn bushes (Lycium ferocissimum) where I was wandering were in full fruit.

Boxthorn is an edible weed, a prime candidate for delicious berries and it was a bounty that I couldn’t pass by. So I spent half an hour braving the thorns to get enough berries to make a jar of Boxthorn jam.

It takes a brave person to pick Boxthorn berries
It takes a brave person…
Boxthorn thorns
… to brave those thorns
