Kangaroo Apple

This is a medium-sized bush/shrub. Drought and frost tolerant. Very interesting lush leaves. The flowers are a pretty blue and the fruit 2-3cm long. It will ripen to a yellow-orange. Apparently not to be consumed until fully ripe.

This is a plant in the pot. It has already fruit on it.

This plant is the same age as the one in the pot. (I started both from seeds.) It really started to grow as soon as I planted it in the orchard extension this spring.

Hello Vegie Gnome

Thanks for posting the pictures of the kangaroo apple. I now know what my friend is growing in her front garden. She was baffled as well
