Myrtus ugni berries, or Myrtus berries, are the fruit of a hardy evergreen shrub native to Chile. The berries are red, about 10mm in diameter with a similar shape to blueberries, and have excellent aroma and flavour. Tas Myrtus Berries Pty Ltd (TMB) recently started commercial production of M. ugni berry under the registered trade name “Tazziberry™” in Tasmania, Australia. The aim of the study was to gain a firm knowledge base for successfully delivering M. ugni berry to the world.
